Description: 

Landscape series puzzle (Mfr #226) made by Joseph Straus, Brooklyn, NY 1940's.  Plywood, interlocking.  Artist is René Charles Edmond His (or Charles Edmond Rene-His) (1877—1960), who signed his paintings René His or E. René-His, a formally trained French painter known for landscapes, especially of rivers, and for Orientalist scenes inspired by travel in Algeria. Coming of age and achieving early success at the end of the 1800s, His carried into the twentieth century the rigorous Academic standards and pre-Impressionist realism of earlier French artists like Jean-Léon Gérôme. After the large virtuoso paintings that launched his career, he settled into a steady production of riverine landscapes of more conventional dimensions with exquisite colors and illusionistic depictions of light on still water. He exhibited in the Paris Salon virtually every year of his long career, and his paintings found collectors throughout his lifetime and beyond, especially in France and Great Britain, less so in the United States.  Wikipedia
