  • The Connoisseur, 1962 Cover for The Saturday Evening Post A painting within a painting! Norman Rockwell was either taking aim at or lauding the Jackson Pollock–like abstract expressionist work being scrutinized by a dapper museum-goer in this entertaining image. Either way, it’s perfect fodder for the 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle, and it just may inspire your own inner connoisseur while you put it together.

    Norman Rockwell (American, 1894–1978) accepted his first commission at 16, and by 20 he was the art director for The Boy Scouts of America’s magazine Boys’ Life. His art career was off and running. To this day, few artists have captured the essence of everyday America with the warmth, humor, and kindness Rockwell brought to his illustrative work. A master of painterly technique, he turned a highly perceptive eye to the details that made his subjects uniquely American, and as his career progressed, his covers for The Saturday Evening Post brought him worldwide recognition. Judy Goffman Cutler, of the American Illustrators Gallery in New York, remarked, “In delivering a distillation of the way we wanted to see our country, his art reflected the currents of American life. By the 1940s Rockwell had become a living national treasure.”

    Pomegranate is proud to produce jigsaw puzzles with thoughtfully conceived, engagingly intricate, and aesthetically appealing images on a solid interlocking format.
