Stomp out the stay-at-home blues with a puzzle for the family! This 672 piece puzzle features Capriccio of Classical Ruins with Boats by Hubert Robert from the Chazen permanent collection.
Like many French artists of his time, Hubert Robert went to Italy to study painting. He was in Rome from 1754-1765, when he probably painted Capriccio of Classical Ruins with Boats and its companion piece Capriccio of Classical Ruins with Pyramid. Robert became a friend of Italian artists Piranesi and Pannini and introduced their type of romantic ruin-painting to France.
