Jigsaw Wooden Puzzle Reverend Walker (250 pieces)
250 piece jigsaw wooden puzzle of Reverend Robert Walker skating on Duddingston Loch by Sir Henry Raeburn, from the National Galleries of Scotlands permanent collection.
A luxury wooden jigsaw, each piece is different and features a range of custom 'hero' pieces which have been designed to relate directly to the image - a piece in the shpae of an ice skate - for example.
Sir Henry Raeburn (Scottish, 1756 - 1823) - Originally apprenticed to a goldsmith, Henry Raeburn showed enormous artistic talent as a young man. In 1784 he moved to London where he met the important portrait painter Joshua Reynolds. He spent some time in Italy but returned to Edinburgh in 1787 where he began painting portraits of the rich, famous and important people of his day. He was in constant demand and received many honours: in 1822 he was knighted when the King visited Edinburgh. Sir Henry Raeburn died a year later.
