Charley Harper’s Once There Was a Field jigsaw puzzle invites us into a wondrous world of birds, blooms, bugs, and butterflies. Bees buzz inside buttercups.

About the Artist
Mid-century modernist Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) portrayed the natural world with heart and humor. In vivid colors and simple shapes, his cardinals, ladybugs, and clever critters have become icons of wildlife art. His illustrations were published in magazines and books, notably Ford Times and The Giant Golden Book of Biology. A longtime conservationist, Harper created posters for more than 50 nature- and conservation-oriented organizations. His US National Park Service posters–massive, each requiring a year to paint–showcase delightful depictions of entire ecosystems in a style he defined as “minimal realism.” He is an artist truly beguiled by the wild, whose art was a quiet catalyst for ecological action.
Puzzles by the Pomegranate company, brought to you by Labyrinth, showcase an exclusive selection of art from museums and artists around the world.
