  • The Arrangement, 2015 Eric Wert’s Arrangement is an elegant floral riot, a hyperrealistic cascade of texture, shadow, and saturated color. It represents what the painter is best known for: visually intense, sensually charged still lifes that are anything but still.Influenced by Dutch still life painters, Wert takes traditional compositions in new directions. This vase cannot contain its abundance of flowers; they spill forward with abandon—and offer you an exquisitely engaging puzzle.

    In his Portland, Oregon, studio, Eric Wert (American, b. 1976) creates still lifes that are the hyperrealistic stuff of dreams. In a veritable flood of sensual detail, he pulls the genre out of the Dutch Golden Age. Wert honed his observation skills as a scientific illustrator at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. Before long he broke away to create oil paintings of flowers, fruits, and vegetables that defy traditional constraints. He uses stunning jewel tones to depict decadent subject matter, with natural and manmade objects arranged as a tumultuous comment on the wonders of life and death. Bees, butterflies, snakes, and other critters find their place in Wert’s work—a modern master’s complex observation of natural mysteries.

    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.

      Mildly difficult, but fun to see it come to "life"

      I really enjoyed this puzzle. The background and border were the most challenging sections. The colors are beautiful and it brightened my day every time I worked on it. The artist has a fruit bowl still life with deep purple tones I would love to have as a puzzle.

      Challenging. I had no luck doing the edge first. Rewarding to see it finally come together.

      Pieces do not fit together well and many have very tiny ends. Lovely subject but poorly cut
