Carnival Parade is a 500-piece, Velvet-Touch puzzle, featuring the artwork of Carl Strathmann (1866 - 1939).
Carl Strathmann (1866 - 1939) was an Art Nouveau painter from Munich, Germany. Strathmann’s work is reliant on an ornate style and meticulous attention to detail that is applied to fairy-tale caricature figures, creating beautifully intricate designs bordering on the fantastical. Strathmann’s œuvre overflows with creativity and imagination, each painting is a lovingly crafted world and ranges from floral still life to fairy-tale scenes. “Carnival Parade” is full of the artist’s bizarre imagery, unique personality, and symbolism, which had earned the German painter great admirers of his art from around the world. Several major works previously thought to have been lost or destroyed, are now preserved in Munich museums.
