  • Shaker Lakes Regional Nature Center A lifelong artist and conservationist, Charley Harper expressed his deep appreciation of nature through his design, forming the groundbreaking “minimal realism” that would become his artistic hallmark. The image featured for this 500-piece puzzle comes from a 1991 poster for the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes in Cleveland, Ohio, created in celebration of the area’s wildlife and the center’s many years of “serendipity in the suburbs.”

    Midcentury modernist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) portrayed the natural world with heart and humor. In vivid colors and simple shapes, his cardinals, ladybugs, and clever critters have become icons of wildlife art. His illustrations were published in magazines and books, notably Ford Times and The Giant Golden Book of Biology. A longtime conservationist, Harper created posters for more than 50 nature- and conservation-oriented organizations. His US National Park Service posters—massive, requiring a year each to paint—showcase delightful depictions of entire ecosystems in a style he defined as “minimal realism.” In his adopted hometown of Cincinnati, his public works are the legacy of an artist truly beguiled by the wild, one whose art was a quiet catalyst for ecological action.

    Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format. The sturdy construction combined with the wide image selection and vibrant color reproduction will delight everyone from experts to first-time puzzlers.

      Secret Sanctuary Puzzle

      I always enjoy Charley Harper Puzzles. And I had purchased three 1000 piece puzzles of his and then saw this 500 piece. It looked lovely. When I opened it, I was surprised at the large pieces. So when completed, it was still a very good-sized puzzle. Suitable for framing by the way. Did it in one day. Am tempted to save it for a year and do it again. Recommend highly.
