Wild energy fills Winslow Homer’s idyllic schoolhouse scene in Snap the Whip. This nostalgic work is a product of post–Civil War America, idolizing life away from cities and towns. It is full of strength and youth and hopeful prospects for the future—symbolic of a society rebuilding itself. The oil painting featured in this puzzle precedes Homer’s major shift to watercolors, and it is a centerpiece of the permanent collection of The Butler Institute of American Art.

I LOVE this image and still do, but this is the hardest puzzle I've ever done. In fact, I'm not finished with it and I've been working on it for three weeks. It's all the greens, which looks varied enough in the image but on my table, it all looks the same. I even bought a new lamp to try to see the colors better. The image is totally worth the work. I plan to frame it. But this is hard. PS: The quality of the pieces truly is excellent, but the finish is very matte, so if the pieces aren't handled carefully, it's possible to scratch them with your fingernail. I like this so much I'm going to frame it and hang it.
I have not assembled this puzzle as yet, but I look forward to doing so. It is a beautiful puzzle, delivered with impressive speed. Thank you.
