  • Purple Robe and Anemones, 1937 Although classically trained at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Henri Matisse quickly rejected traditional illusionistic representation in favor of flat areas of vivid color and uneven smears of paint in his portraits, landscapes, and still lifes. He often used exotic fabrics and brightly patterned textiles as compositional elements to boost his expansive designs, as exhibited in this painting reproduced for this 1,000-piece puzzle.

    Henri Matisse (French, 1869–1954) was born into a family of weavers and was trained as a lawyer before turning to art in his twenties. His youthful exposure to textiles helped shape his love of color and texture. Although his early artwork paid homage to influences such as Paul Cezanné and Edward Manet, Matisse was a modernist through and through and spent most of his career experimenting with diverse media, techniques, and styles. He was a draftsman, printmaker, and sculptor but is best known as a painter. Some of his most acclaimed paintings were created in the early 1900s, when he found his place at the leading edge of the Fauvism movement. Matisse is now widely considered to be the supreme colorist of the 20th century.

    Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format.

      This was a challenge, but I stuck with it after paying $25. Love the matte finish and weird little heads on the pieces. Recommend for people with patience!

      Although the puzzle is deceptively challenging: the purple all looks the same, the grays appear nearly identical, this is such a well-crafted and beautiful puzzle.
