Today's puzzle is based on the 1888 painting with the same name. Also known as Entrance Gate to a Farm with Haystacks, Farmhouse in Provence is an oil-on-canvas by Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. At the time that Van Gogh made this beautiful painting, he was 35 years old and living in Arles, in southern France. During this period he produced some of his best work, such as fields, farmhouses and people of the Arles and Avignon area. As you might of already noticed, Van Gogh used several pairs of complementary colors in the Farmhouse in Provence, the color contrast bringing an intensity to his work.
This new puzzle is based on the 1887 oil on canvas painting by Gustave Caillebotte - a French painter who was a member and patron of the Impressionists, although he painted in a more realistic manner than many others in the group. Between 1877 and 1878, Caillebotte made a series of paintings focusing on swimmers, rowers, fishermen, and canoers at his family estate in Yerres. One of these paintings is Skiffs or "Pesissoires sur L'Yerres" (Flat-Bottom Canoes on the Yerres) how it was originally named. The painting was first exhibited at the fourth impressionist exhibition in 1879.
Today's puzzle is based on Camille Pissaro's 1872 impressionist oil on canvas painting "Still Life with Apples and Pitcher". Pissarro was a Danish-French Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist painter born on the island of St Thomas. He is the only artist to have shown his work at all eight Paris Impressionist exhibitions, from 1874 to 1886.
Are you ready for the race? In this new puzzle we feature a painting by the Impressionist French painter Edgar Degas called "Before the Race". The painting depicts four jockeys on horseback just before a race. The horse and rider theme was one of Degas's favorites. He returned to this theme time and time again throughout his career. Over the course of his career it is reported that he created 45 oils, 20 pastels, 250 drawings, and 17 sculptures related to horses.
Another beautiful art themed puzzle is here. This new one is based on H. Lyman Sayen 1915/1916 oil on canvas painting : " Landscape, Bridge, Huntingdon Valley". If you didn't know, Sayen (1875 -1918) was an American pioneer in the design of x-ray tubes who also distinguished himself as an abstract artist.
This fun new puzzle is base on "The Lock at Pontoise", a painting by the impressionist French artist Camille Pissarro. The painting depicts a river lock near the artist’s home at Pontoise, a rural commune about 17 miles northwest of Paris. The painting was done directly on canvas without preliminary drawing and it may have been completed in a single session.
Another art themed puzzle is here. Also known as the "Road Menders at Saint-Remy", the painting that today's puzzle is based on depicts roadwork taking place underneath some large plane trees on a autumn day. In actuality, "The Large Pane Trees" (the one featured in this puzzle) and the "Road Menders of Saint-Remy" are two different paintings and are sometimes confused as one. Although similar, Van Gogh painted this one first on a red and white checkered table cloth and later painted it again on an actual canvas.
This new puzzle is based on Pieter Bruegel the Elder's oil-on-panel painting "The Peasant Dance". The lively peasant scene provides the viewer with a glimpse of social history, but it is likely that Bruegel intended this painting to have a moral sense rather than simply being an affectionate portrayal of peasant life. The panel, neither signed nor dated, was painted circa 1567, at about the same time as "The Peasant Wedding".
This new puzzle is based on Pierre-Auguste Renoir's painting "Luncheon of the Boating Party" (1881; French: Le déjeuner des canotiers). The painting depicts a group of Renoir's friends relaxing on a balcony at the Maison Fournaise restaurant along the Seine river in Chatou, France. The painting was included in the Seventh Impressionist Exhibition in 1882 and it was identified as the best painting in the show by critics.
