The Briar Rose
, 1905, Walter Crane (English, 1845–1915). Tempera on panel, 85.8 x 103.2 cm (33¾ x 40⅝ in.).
English artist, designer, and book illustrator Walter Crane (1845–1915) was associated with the Arts and Crafts movement and influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, particularly Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones. This triptych illustrating the Sleeping Beauty fairytale shows the royal household asleep, the discovery of the princess by the prince, and the wakening of the ladies-in-waiting. The reverse sides are decorated with a tangle of briar roses and a poetic inscription related to the tale. Crane used tempera in emulation of the early Italian painters. The altarpiece format also looks back to Italian art and suggests the sanctity of love.
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, our 500-piece interlocking jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
