This is the first 5000 piece art puzzle that Educa produced. Educa manufactured this copy in 1980, with the title Art Studio, Rubens’ House, by Willem van Haecht. Later, in 2002, they published a second edition, slightly different, with the title The Gallery of Cornelis van der Geest. Both editions are difficult to find, but this one is extremely rare, particularly in new condition.
Educa manufactured some of the best fine arts puzzles in the market. At the same time, they selected very nice pieces of art. As a consequence, many of their puzzles from the late 80’s and the 90’s are now very rare. In fact, they don’t appear often outside of Spain.
This puzzle is like NEW, with all the pieces SEALED inside the original plastic bag. The box is in good condition, with some wear. One side of the box has lost its color from the sun, as you can see in the photographs.
