Ten artistic jigsaws that make perfect puzzle gifts for adults

A picture is worth a thousand words. And a beautiful one can say even more! A good jigsaw needs a great picture so at Wentworth we both commission fantastic artists to create unique images for our wooden puzzles and also use classics from world renowned artists like Claude Monet, Wassily Kandinsky and Vincent van Gogh.

To create the perfect puzzle for those who enjoy the hobby of completing a jigsaw, we work with artists like Aimee Stewart, Rachel Arbuckle and Victoria Hall who specialise in creating images that look visually impressive and are also challenging jigsaws. We’ve put together a collection of some of our favourite puzzles, some from artists specially commissioned by Wentworth and others by some of the most famous artists ever to have lived. 

A Boat Passing a Lock - John Constable

This classic scene by Constable is bound to impress fans of fine art. The mill houses depicted still exist as grade I listed buildings, so perhaps this puzzle may inspire a cultural outing. It's a lovely scene by a fantastic British painter and it makes a great gift for fine art enthusiasts. This high quality, traditional, wooden jigsaw puzzle can be done time and again and its specially themed whimsy pieces make it a treat to complete.
