Art puzzles have become the latest trend in decoration for both home and office, creating a distinguished, elegant and, of course, full of beauty. And one of the greatest exponents of world art is Van Gogh.
The world of art, and especially that of painting, is full of great artists who have put their inspiration at the service of human emotion and beauty. Painters who have managed to capture the world around them through a prism so different and personal that they become unique beings, turning their works into authentic icons of universal beauty.
However, not all transcend, only those that offer a perfect balance between technique and imagination, charm and passion, are those that remain throughout the centuries. One of them is the Dutch painter Vicent Van Gogh.
Van Gogh, the ignored genius
Vicent Van Gogh was born in Holland in 1853 and into a family with strong religious convictions. His fondness for drawing appeared during childhood. At that time he liked to capture traditional scenes, especially those in which people from his community appeared. However, back then, his color palette was limited to dark and earthy tones.
It would be years later when the explosion of light entered his work. An outburst of colors, through small strokes and strategically arranged dots, would make up a unique and unrepeatable style, what we now know as post-impressionism and of which it was the greatest exponent of it.
We know that throughout his life he painted 800 paintings, great works that did not have any significance during his time, since he was only able to sell two of them. However, history has found the place it deserves.

The benefits of puzzles linked to art
The benefits of assembling puzzles at any age are well known:
