A.J. Casson: Jack Pine and Poplar 1,000-piece Jigsaw Puzzle
Puzzles are a favorite form of indoor amusement, but through them, you can still explore the outdoors. Look no further than this 1000-piece puzzle of Jack Pine and Poplar, (1948), by AJ Casson. Among Canada’s key 20th century artists, Casson was the youngest member of the Group of Seven, a cohort that favored direct contact with nature. The composition showcases a classic mountain setting, with forested trees in the foreground and a mountainous water vista in back, but with an abstract fragmentation that speaks to the artist’s familiarity with modernist forms. Who could ask for a better view?
