Bouquet of Chrysanthemums by Auguste Renoir

A true stroke of thrifting luck, when you spot that deer in a spotlight logo on the side of a box, you’ve won.

What exactly does this mean? It means you’ve found a beautiful puzzling experience, friends. A puzzle that comes from the late 1960s and has such a smooth, glossy finish with a perfect fit, PUZZLE PERFECTION.

Gorgeous red cardboard, and high colour saturation.

This is a stunning puzzle that dates to 1968 of An Auguste Renoir painting called Bouquet of Chrysanthemums. I thought it was going to be hard but this was perfect, a good challenge level but engaging and quick.

I was so amazed at the brushwork, it’s really stunning up close. I’m so struck by this era of painting, it seems so hard to tell what you’re looking at up close but with a little distance, everything comes into focus. It’s really incredible!

I was so happy to see that this was a complete puzzle, it is one that I will definitely return to many times! 500 pieces, complete and found at Value Village.
