Gerard Johnson Carving Puzzle Details:

About: Today's puzzle is based on a painting by Wallis depicting Gerard Johnson carving Shakespeare's funerary monument. Ben Jonson shows Shakespeare's death mask to the sculptor. Gerard Johnson (flourished c. 1612–1623) is the Anglicised form of Gheerart Janssen, a sculptor who worked in Jacobean England and who is thought to have created Shakespeare's funerary monument. In 1849 a death mask was discovered in Germany, and was claimed to be Shakespeare's. It received great publicity when the anatomist Richard Owen authenticated it and suggested that it was used by Johnson as the model for the memorial. Henry Wallis later painted this imagined scene validating the mask. The mask is no longer considered to be authentic.

Mural By A Staircase Play

Mural By A Staircase

If you didn't know, a mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other permanent surface. Murals of sorts date to Upper Paleolithic times such as the paintings in the Chauvet Cave. There are many different styles and techniques. The best-known is probably fresco, from the Italian word affresco which derives from the adjective fresco ("fresh"), a method in which the paint is applied on plaster on walls or ceilings. The pigment is then absorbed by the wet plaster; after a number of hours, the plaster dries and reacts with the air: it is this chemical reaction which fixes the pigment particles in the plaster. In today's puzzle we feature a colorful and intricate mural depicting historical scenes on the walls next to an impressive marble staircase. Pick a difficulty level click start and put it back together as fast as you can for a fun puzzle solving time.
