It was Gustav Klimt’s birthday on Sunday. The art nouveau icon was born on July 14, 1862 and died Feb. 6, 1918. Klimt’s work remains as some of the most expensive on the art market. In celebration of his birthday, Vienna’s museums offered an exhibit called “Klimt: Up Close and Personal” – where his artwork was given a new light – not just beautiful reproductions of his most famous golden work “The Kiss,” but also showing off the “worst of the worst” – some 100+ objects sent from around the world that Klimt’s work has been reproduced on – from toilet-seat covers, bejeweled eggs with rotating figured from “The Kiss” and Elvis music – to pictures of tattoos.
We think Gustav Klimt Jigsaw Puzzles are a much classier way to honor the intricate artwork of this great, late, artist. After all, only some of the highest quality puzzle brands have reproduced his work – Heye, Piatnik and Pomegranate to name a few of our favorites. Below, see some of the artwork that is available on jigsaw puzzles from Gustav Klimt. Puzzles are a great way to enjoy your favorite artwork time and time again because they can either be glued and framed to form a wonderful piece of wall decoration – or disassembled and put back together over the years.
Thomas Barbey is a photography artist inspired by travel and everyday life, as well as the surrealism nature of artists such as M.C. Escher and Roger Dean. Barbey creates montages from concept to finish using negative, double exposure and retouching. His entire gallery of work can be seen on his website, Thomas Barbey Gallery.
We are introducing a new line for Puzzle Warehouse, the Barbey Black and White Photo Art Puzzle Series, with much excitement!

2. Busy Bee Quilting Club SunsOut, 300 pieces. This one is not new, but it one of our highest sellers, and it has been discontinued by SunsOut – so we have ordered up extra – better grab it while you can!
No, this is not a proposition. We will not keep you company, nor will we send you an entertainer to make you smile and forget you’re feeling blue. Or, perhaps, we will. We could send you a King, and you would probably enjoy it. Not the sort of royalty who demands respect, formal bows and obedience, but the sort of king who likes to party, and who knows how to party.
Not all monarchs are boring, you know, and the one we have in mind the least of all. Our king is a very special one; it is the king of Rock and Roll. The one and only Elvis Presley can be on his way to your home in only a couple of minutes. Not in flesh and bones, unfortunately, but as a jigsaw puzzle. An entertaining Elvis jigsaw puzzle, featuring an image from the popular illustrator Chris Consani, with the King doing what he knows best: making people enjoy themselves.
With 550 pieces and a finished size of 24″ x 18″, the King doesn’t have to go anywhere, once he’s settled in, and with him aboard, your loneliness will never be the same again. It’s now or never. Look for it at Puzzle Warehouse, order it, assemble it, and never ever return it to sender.
We advise you to listen to some old Elvis records while working on the Elvis jigsaw puzzle, and we guarantee you’ll have a great time. You can even make this a social event and invite some of the members of your family, and even your friends. With such music and such a jigsaw puzzle, your house will definitely be the soul of the party.
The sun is shining over St. Louis, and the ice and snow has finally melted away. Because after winter there always comes spring, this week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day honors that wonderful season with the colorful 300 pieces jigsaw puzzle by SunsOut – Covered Bridge in Spring.
We believe that winter has its glow around holidays when you can go skiing or snowboarding and around Christmas and New Year’s Eve. After that, though, it starts to get old and may even start making you feel a bit melancholy: everything seems frozen.
We bet you can’t wait to see those trees blossom again and the green grass to cover the ground. And let us not forget about those sweet songs that birds will sing early in the morning or about those shy sunny rays. Oh! And the wonderful trips in the mountains or perhaps to the beach.
We all love spring because it is such a balanced season – not too hot, but also not too cold, not too dry but also not too rainy. One of its best parts is that you can leave your iPod home. Why? Well, it would be a shame not to enjoy the birds trill or the bees tingle.
If winter persists outside your house and our words have cruelly made you pine for sunshine, perhaps this spring themed jigsaw puzzle of the day can act as a surrogate until those warm spring days knock at your door, too.
