Van Gogh Starry Night 1000 Piece Jigsaw
This 1000 piece jigsaw featuring Van Gogh's Starry Night will satisfy your need for a challenge. Van Gogh’s famous painting was created from memory during his extended term at the Asylum in Saint-Rémy, towards the end of his life, in 1889. Unlike many of his masterpieces, very little is known about the motivations for this piece because it is barely mentioned in the correspondence with his brother Theo. Starry Night does capture the essence of Van Gogh’s style, with its strong, textured strokes, sweeping lines of movement, and the exaggerated detail, all of which point to the anxious turmoil of the artist’s incarceration. The painting retains the impression of the world around us, but hints at the emotions beyond and behind.
Part of a series of sturdy, square-box 1000-piece jigsaw puzzles from Flame Tree, featuring powerful and popular works of art. This jigsaw is intended for adults and children over 13 years. Not suitable for children under 3 years due to small parts. The finished jigsaw size is 735 x 510mm/29 x 20 ins.
