1000-piece Paul Cezanne Bathers 1890–2 Jigsaw Puzzle
🍑 + 🧩 = 🤗
Paul Cézanne, a post-impressionist painter of extraordinary talent, developed a unique style that straddled the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavour to a new, radically different world of art in the 20th century. In 'Bathers 1890–2', he created an intimate visual poem of six male figures, seemingly oblivious to the viewer's gaze, engaged in silent communion with nature and each other.

The figures in 'Bathers', robust and fleshy, hold a poignant resemblance to their surroundings. With the soft, rounded forms of their bodies mirroring the landscape, they seem as much a part of the wilderness as the trees, mountains and water around them. Their colours - a soothing palette of blues, greys, pinks, and oranges - are carried directly from the landscape, reinforcing the sense of their inherent kinship with the natural world.
This puzzle’s the perfect opportunity to slow your roll 🐌 and enjoy the process… of putting together a real beaut. 🧩
The exquisite jigsaw puzzle faithfully captures Cézanne’s sensation of being outdoors, probably influenced by his experiences of plein air painting with fellow artist Camille Pissarro. This effect is particularly discernible in the way the figures seem to sprout from the earth like trees, their bare skin mingling with the hues of the land, their physical boundaries only slightly defined by sketched outlines.
The jigsaw puzzle of Cézanne's 'Bathers 1890–2' offers an immersive artistic experience. Assembling this puzzle allows you to engage with Cézanne’s style and motifs in a tactile, intimate manner. The process of piecing together the different segments of the artwork fosters an appreciation for the abstract nuances and emotional resonance inherent in Cézanne's painting, moving beyond mere representation.
