This ode to color and movement is a 346 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle of the 1955 painting Jeunesse by American painter Stanton MacDonald-Wright.

The puzzle has abstract piece shapes and diverse connector shapes, inspired by mid-century modernism and the atomic age, and an irregular edge (no recognizable whimsies). Puzzle design by David Figueiras.

Stanton Macdonald-Wright co-founded the early abstract art movement of Synchromism, which tried to arrange colors in a visual symphony, inspired by advances in color science.   This is an outstanding example of Macdonald-Wright's style painted in 1955.  Comedian Steve Martin talks about a similar Stanton MacDonald-Wright painting as one of his favorite things at Moma in this 5 min youtube video.

We've rated this puzzle as average in terms of difficulty - some puzzlers will find this puzzle pretty easy, but it's not quite as easy as it looks because it's harder to pick out the different shades of color than you'd think, and because there are no straight edge pieces (irregular edge). 

Like all our puzzles, made with 1/4" thick wood and the pieces are laser-cut.

Packaged in our standard pine wood box.

Made in the USA.
