Number of Pieces - 1000
Size of Jigsaw - 68 x 48cm
Taken from Jumbo's Fine Art collection, these are two paintings made by the popular English artist Frederick Morgan. The jigsaw puzzles, each made up of one thousand pieces, are as challenging as they are beautiful.
'The Dancing Bear' features a charming scene of children playing outside with their mother while a travelling man with his dancing bear pass through their peaceful village. The serene atmosphere is disturbed by the barking dog standing at one edge of the illustration, announcing the strange apparition.
The other image, 'Blind Man's Buff', depicts the traditional game of tag, featuring an unlikely player, the children's grandfather. He dutifully helps one boy to tie his blindfold under the watchful eyes of the family's dog, while the other children wait and smile.
Beautifully painted and with a hint of nostalgia, the finished puzzles transport you into another world, an idyllic and romantic landscape of country life from the 19th century.
