From the Appalachian foothills of his youth to the mountains of the American West, explored while on a traveling scholarship in 1947, Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) gathered impressions of nature that would forever inform his artwork. He said, “I came to grips with my new attitude toward form—SIMPLIFY. I couldn’t get a Rocky Mountain on a piece of paper without simplifying it. I walked away from a scene before putting brush to paper, eliminated perspective and shading, and recorded only what I felt to be its essence. It was the most satisfying painting I had ever done. I had discovered life after realism.”
Harper’s paintings and prints have been published by a variety of nature- and conservation-oriented organizations. His work has been featured in Ford Times magazine (1948–1982); on posters for the National Park Service, the Audubon Society, and many other conservation organizations; and in several books, including Harper Ever After: The Early Work of Charley and Edie Harper, Charles Harper’s Birds & Words, Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life, Charley Harper’s Animal Kingdom, and the Charley Harper Nature Discovery Series.

A lot of fun. Charley Harper has such wonderful graphics!
Very nice puzzle! Love the design
We LOVED this puzzle and could work on it together easily because of the length of it. Only problem was the border of black because it was near to impossible to place the pieces. Charlie Harper’s artwork is so beautifully graphic!!!
Pomegranate puzzles are awesome! And love love Charlie Harper!
I love the Charley Harper puzzles I have done from Pomegranate and this was no exception. The illustration is probably one of my favorites - beautiful colors and lots of fun patterns and details to look for. I enjoyed almost everything about this puzzle but the solid black sections were HARD! (The rest of the puzzle is not difficult.) I sometimes find Pomegranate's pieces to be very similar in size and shape and there were times when I thought I had the right piece only to find out later I did not. Otherwise it was a fun puzzle to do!
another great harper puzzle
Friends sent us one of your Charley Harper puzzles with 500 pieces and we loved it so we ordered this one, this time with 1000 pieces. This one is a lot more challenging because the edge pieces are all the same color so we're having to work it from the inside out. LOTS of fun. We are really enjoying it and plan to order another one. We have liked Charley Harper's art for a long time and are delighted to discover these puzzles based on his work. Thank you.
I love Charley Harper's images! Fun to assemble, as are all his puzzles.
