Wolf Kahn (American, b. Germany 1927)
Tall Pines, 1999

Given that Wolf Kahn works in nearly violent colors, his paintings are wonderfully tranquil; exercises in chromatic tension and formal movement, they are also sharply evocative of real-world landscapes. His paintings, such as Tall Pines, embody the synthesis of realism and the formal discipline of color field painting.

Kahn has received Fulbright and Guggenheim fellowships, and his works are in many collections, including those of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

With subjects ranging from fine art, nature, and architecture to humor, the metaphysical, and more, Pomegranate’s interlocking jigsaw puzzles combine stunning images, superb color reproduction, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzle solvers alike.

Eric Wert (American, b. 1976)
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.

Wert began his career as a scientific illustrator. Influenced by Dutch still life painters, he uses stunning jewel tones to depict decadent subject matter, taking traditional compositions in new directions. His expertly shaped fruits, vegetables, and flowers approach realism but go beyond its limitations.

Wert received a bachelor of fine arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a master of fine arts degree from Northwestern University. He lives in Portland, Oregon.

Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007)
The Coral Reef

Wildlife artist Charley Harper, whose whimsical paintings portraying all kinds of creatures have delighted art and animal lovers for over sixty years, came by his love of nature as a child growing up in rural West Virginia. Harper (American, 1922–2007) developed his unique style while a student at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the Art Students League in New York City. He went on to illustrate numerous books and to create works for many conservation organizations, including the Audubon Society and the National Park Service, for which The Coral Reef was produced. Harper designed more than fifty posters for various natural areas, parks, and conservation organizations, each celebrating a special part of our natural world in the unmistakable and vibrant style Harper called “minimal realism.”

Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, our 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.

Alma Thomas (American, 1891–1978)
The Eclipse, 1970

Freshly inspired by the 1969 Moon landing, Alma Thomas created the glowing, mosaic-like work The Eclipse, part of her Space paintings series. Thomas began painting after retiring from nearly forty years of teaching, and she explored expressionist, abstract, and nonobjective phases of art. She finally focused on bold, splashy paintings such as the one in this 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle, in which her lifelong study of color theory sparkles.

Rosalind Wise (British, b. 1949)
Prairie Meadow with Echinacea

Intensity of color is a hallmark of Rosalind Wise’s artworks. Here, pink echinacea and yellow black-eyed Susans stand out in a meadow of blue and green foliage and wild grasses. The inspiration for this large oil painting came from a prairie meadow at the Royal Horticultural Society Garden at Wisley in Surrey, England. This 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle reproduces the vibrancy of the prairie in a dazzling display.

Charley Harpers The Desert was originally featured on a poster commissioned by the US National Park Service. The painting includes an abundance and variety of flora and fauna, from the gila woodpecker (center) to the white-throated woodrat hiding beneath it. Nocturnal creatures blend into the darkness, but their eyes glow, ever alert! Harper made paintings filled with color, motion, and fun. His careful study of each creature helped him simplify its form so that its unique personality shone through. His work has been treasured by art and animal enthusiasts for decades.

After years of rubbing elbows with the artistic avant-garde of Montparnasse, Diego Rivera returned to Mexico soon after a very different encounter with the Renaissance masters Giotto and Michelangelo. His commitment to Mexicos recently completed revolution and his new interest in fresco painting led Rivera to participate in a program of public works, murals on broad expanses of wall that anyone could visit, painted in a straightforward style indebted to pre-Columbian and folk art.

Later, a mural painted for San Franciscos Pacific Stock Exchange attracted the attention of the Detroit Institute of Arts, which commissioned him to paint the walls of its classical Garden Court. His theme, the manufacture of automobiles through human labor, pleased Edsel Ford, the president of the Ford Motor Company, who agreed to fund the project and became a great champion of the artist. The vast factory Ford built on the Rouge River, where Rivera spent days sketching, provided the images for the murals largest panels, including the one shown here.
