Title: The Bird Catchers Jigsaw Puzzle
About: Today's new puzzle is based on a painting from 1748 by Francois Boucher - a French painter in the Rococo style. Boucher is known for his idyllic and voluptuous paintings on classical themes, decorative allegories, and pastoral scenes. The painting in today's jigsaw depicts fashionable couples in the act of catching birds. In the 1700s, small birds played an important symbolic role in courtship ritual: the gift of a caged bird from a man to a woman signified her capture of his heart.
