These Jigsaw Puzzles Let You Recreate the Most Famous Works of Art at Home
Just because museums are still closed doesn’t mean you can’t see famous works of art. As it turns out, you can just make your own—well, in puzzle form at least.
Eurographics, a Montreal-based puzzle manufacturer, is selling a collection of jigsaw puzzles that lets you tap into your inner artist. Each puzzle will not only entertain, but also educate, as pieces are so detailed that it’ll give you a newfound appreciation of what actually makes up each masterpiece.
For instance, Claude Monet’s “The Artist’s Garden in Giverny” allows you to get an up-close look at the fine brushstrokes he used to create its expressive and colorful composition. Another impressionist painting is Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” which is just as challenging to do as it was for him to paint, I’m sure.
And of course, what’s an art collection without the “Mona Lisa”? I dare you to not smile as you put together the pieces of what is arguably the world’s most iconic painting. And, unlike Leonardo da Vinci, completing the composition will probably only take you a few hours (or days)—not four years.
In addition to 1,000-piece sets, the puzzles are also available in sets of 100 for kids and 2,000 for those really looking for a challenge. Once you finish some three to four puzzles, you’ll have enough artworks to put up a mini gallery at home.
