500-piece L. S. Lowry Yachts Jigsaw Puzzle
Not going anywhere this summer? Hunker down with L. S. Lowry's travel-inspired jigsaw puzzle.
Yachts was painted in watercolour by L.S Lowry in 1959. The 500-piece L. S. Lowry Yachts Jigsaw Puzzle is the perfect summertime pastime (or wintertime!). Lowry is often recognised for his portrayals of industrial scenes filled with 'matchstick men'. However, he also had a lifelong fascination with the sea and produced a number of seascapes including this colourful portrayal of the seaside filled with an array of yachts and holiday makers. This is the perfect entertainment alternative for those of us who don't own yachts!

Lowry’s fascination with the sea is well documented and upon retiring in the 1950s he began to spend more time in the North East of England, often staying at the Seaburn Hotel in Sunderland, not far from South Shields. Here Lowry was able to explore his passion for seascapes. Watercolour is the one medium which the artist used only occasionally. It is likely that its obvious limitation, speed of drying, made it a less suitable vehicle for his thoughtful temperament than pastel, or of course oils, both of which can be developed at leisure.
