By the sea is a 1000-Piece jigsaw puzzle based on the artwork of famed master painter Charles Wysocki. In this puzzle, the Nantucket, a sidewheel steamboat, is docked at a Wharf near cape cod. Beginning at the end of the nineteenth century, the Nantucket operated as a ferry serving the islands of Martha's vineyard and Nantucket. Wysocki also painted storefronts and buggies selling new England fare in this piece, as well. For more than 40 years Charles Wysocki enjoyed his love affair with life and Americana, and through his imaginative and colorful artwork, touched the hearts of millions worldwide. "Chuck" felt a special kinship with puzzlers who share in the creative process by building his paintings one piece at a time. Every Buffalo Games jigsaw puzzle is manufactured in the U.S.A.
