Today's art themed puzzle is based on the 1866 "Still Life with Flowers and Fruit" painting by Henri Fantin-Latour.

Today's puzzle is based on a beautiful still life painting by Henri Fantin-Latour. In this painting, Fantin-Latour skillfully arranges the objects to create a balanced and visually engaging scene. The fruit basket is filled with an assortment of fruits, such as apples, grapes, and pears. The artist meticulously renders the textures and colors of the fruits, bringing them to life with vibrant hues and intricate detailing. In the center of the painting, a bouquet of flowers adds a touch of natural beauty and elegance to the composition. Lastly, a book rests near the tea cup, providing an additional element of interest to the composition. The book, with its pages slightly opened, indicates the presence of intellectual or leisurely pursuits and adds a sense of depth and narrative to the painting.
This new puzzle is based on Paul Cezanne 1893 painting "The Basket of Apples". This painting contains one of Cezanne's signature tilted tables, an impossible rectangle with no right angles. On the table you can see a basket of apples, a bottle of wine, a folded tablecloth and a plate of cookies. The painting is particularly remarkable for its creative composition, which rejected realistic representation in favor of distorting objects to create multiple perspectives.
This new puzzle is based on Pissaro's 1893 painting, "A Washerwoman at Eragny". The washerwoman in Pissarro's painting is hard at work, scrubbing clothing in one barrel and rinsing them out in another. Before the invention of electricity and washing machines this is the way most people used to clean their clothes. It was hard work and it took a lot more time than today. If you didn't already know, a washerwoman or laundress is a woman who takes in laundry. These terms are now old-fashioned.
Today we're visiting The Grand Canal in Venice in 1740. This fun and challenging puzzle is based on Giovanni Antonio Canal (commonly known as Canaletto, an Italian painter from the Republic of Venice) 1740 oil on canvas painting "The Grand Canal in Venice from Palazzo Flangini to Campo San Marcuola". Canaletto made at least three versions of this view of the Grand Canal. He recorded every detail of every building along the canal, every window, door, and chimney and other architectural details.
Another fun and challenging still-life puzzle is here. This new one is based on a painting by Cornelis de Heem (a still-life painter associated with both Flemish Baroque and Dutch Golden Age painting) called "Still-Life with Crayfish, Oysters, and Fruit". Pick your difficulty, put the table full of fruit, oysters and crayfish back together and complete today's challenge! Have fun!
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.
Today we're going back to the 1890s and visiting the Bruton Church in the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia. This puzzle is based on a oil on canvas painting by Alfred Wordsworth Thompson and it depicts the Bruton Parish Church. The church was constructed between 1711 and 1715. The building was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970 as a well-preserved early example of colonial religious architecture.
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.
