Stomp out the stay-at-home blues with a puzzle for the family! This 672 piece puzzle features The Artist’s Studio by Auguste-Xavier Leprince from the Chazen permanent collection.
In his short lifetime, Auguste-Xavier Leprince became a well-known artist and master of his own studio. In this painting, Leprince offers a glimpse into an academic artist’s studio of the 1820s. The highly detailed canvas shows how artist’s worked, what tools were used, and how brushes were held. Leprince is the figure seen from the back in profile seated before the large painting to the right of the center. The canvas he is working on is Loading of Livestock at Honfleur, which he exhibited in the Paris Salon of 1824 and was purchased two years later by King Charles X of France.
