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.

His paintings are classics and he is probably one of Denmark's most popular artists.
Glorious First of June

Glorious First of June

The Glorious First of June (also known as the Third Battle of Ushant, and in France as the Bataille du 13 prairial an 2 or Combat de Prairial) of 1794 was the first and largest fleet action of the naval conflict between the Kingdom of Great Britain and the First French Republic during the French Revolutionary Wars. The British Channel Fleet under Admiral Lord Howe attempted to prevent the passage of a vital French grain convoy from the United States, which was protected by the French Atlantic Fleet, commanded by Vice-Admiral Louis Thomas Villaret de Joyeuse. The two forces clashed in the Atlantic Ocean, some 400 nautical miles (741 km) west of the French island of Ushant on 1 June 1794. This jigsaw is based on Philippe-Jacques de Loutherbourg's painting depicting this naval battle.
A Scene from Undine

A Scene from Undine

Undine is a novel by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué in which Undine, a water spirit, marries a knight named Huldebrand in order to gain a soul.

Still Life With Flowers, Gilt Goblet And Dried Fruits

Still Life With Flowers, Gilt Goblet And Dried Fruits

Another art inspired jigsaw puzzle is here. Based on the painting "Still Life with Flowers, a Silver-gilt Goblet, Dried Fruit, Sweetmeats, Bread sticks, Wine and a Pewter Pitcher" by Clara Peeters. The composition of this painting carefully balances two principles. The objects appear casually laid on the table in apparently random order. The goal of the artist is to make the scene look lifelike. Simultaneously, the painter has labored to provide a clear and frontal view of all that is displayed. On the gilt goblet and the pewter flagon, both of which are similar to vessels in other works by Peeters, the artist painted her self-portrait – three times in the goblet and four on the pewter jug.
