If you want to understand art, then (as Agnes Martin instructs), “You go there and sit and look.” But it is a rare and celebrated moment when my preschoolers sit and just look. That is one of the reasons I really like jigsaw puzzles that picture artworks. We can all just sit and look. There are a few producers making puzzles that have under 100 pieces (even one making a series of 12 piece puzzles). I chose some of my favorites below.

You can find a longer list of art jigsaw puzzles for children and adults in my Amazon List. The majority cover familiar artists, and I would love to see broader options from the canon of art history. Don’t miss my list of the top jigsaw puzzles made by contemporary artists from earlier this week.
