Based on a painting by Francis William Edmonds, an American painter (1806 - 1863), the image in today's puzzle is loosely based on James Kirke Paulding's "The Dutchman's Fireside", a popular tale set in mid-eighteenth-century New York. The story deals with the relationship between a shy, ungainly bachelor and his distant cousin. You can see them both in the this fun new jigsaw game. Image Credits: Francis William Edmonds
