The Rocky Mountains by Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007)
Charley Harper’s whimsical paintings have delighted art and animal lovers for more than sixty years. Harper developed his unique style while a student at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the Art Students League in New York City. His distinctive use of simple geometric shapes, patterns, and vivid colors—a style he defined as “minimal realism”—succinctly captured the essence of each creature he portrayed.
Harper’s posters have been published by more than fifty nature- and conservation-oriented organizations. The Rocky Mountains, created for Rocky Mountain National Park, was one of ten posters Harper was commissioned to create for the National Park Service.
Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, this 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle combines superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzle workers.
