Edward Gorey (American, 1925–2000)
The gleefully chaotic work reproduced in this puzzle might be seen as Edward Gorey’s celebration of the theater, which brought him great pleasure and inspiration. The acclaimed author-artist had a lifelong interest in the theater. His participation in the Broadway production of Dracula garnered three Tony Award nominations, and he wrote and produced engaging and quirky plays that appeared both on and off Broadway and on Cape Cod.
Putting this 1,000-piece puzzle together may bring you some insight into Gorey’s creative process, but then again, it might just leave you happily baffled.
