Before Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) had painted animals of all kinds, from all continents, he was exploring the foothills near his family’s farm in rural West Virginia. A lifelong conservationist, Harper ultimately found his passion in creating fresh and witty paintings of wildlife in his own minimal realist style. He went on to delight legions of art and animal lovers the world over with his posters for the National Park Service, including Isle Royale National Park, Michigan. The park, established in 1940, spans a large wilderness island and more than 450 smaller islands in Lake Superior. It’s home to wolves, moose, and a wide variety of birds, a few of which Harper has perched amid the birches in this poster. The artworks for his park posters—massive, requiring a year each to paint—showcase Harper’s skill in depicting entire ecosystems by using simple shapes and patterns, and vivid colors.

Always challenging to work on a Charley Harper puzzle, but also fun.
A lot of fun. Charley Harper has such wonderful graphics! Challenging with all the vertical lines, but it was worth the extra time.
I'm a native of the U.P. of Michigan so this puzzle was special to me.
Beautiful image, and speedy, secure delivery.
This puzzle is harder than it looks!
Great puzzle! We enjoyed it.
I enjoyed this puzzle immensely.
I’m still in the middle of completing this beautiful Charley Harper design. It’s been a tough one, but that’s where the excitement is for me and a good puzzle!
Love it. Certainly a challenge, but a great way to enjoy staying First I did the frame, then the animals and birds, then the leaves which were harder than expected. Now I am working on the while poles and central black figure which will leave me with the rest of the background. I ordered another puzzle that looks even more challenging, but someday I will be back for more. Nice quality puzzles.
This puzzle was harder than I expected, but not to the point that it was frustrating. High quality puzzle.
Great looking puzzle, came quickly as well. Very pleased with my order.
