Buckingham Palace
1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

£14.00

One of London’s most iconic buildings, Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1837. It boasts 775 rooms, including no fewer than 52 Royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms and 19 State Rooms.

In this Painting, set in mid-June, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are leaving the Palace for the Trooping of the Colour, on the occasion of the Queen’s official birthday. This custom dates back to King Charles 2nd in the 17th Century, when the colours of a regiment were used as a rallying point in battle. The ceremony is carried out by the Household Division on Horse Guard’s Parade, where the Queen attends and takes the salute. Since 1987 the Queen has ridden in an open carriage, rather than riding side-saddle and wearing the regimental uniform, as she did following her accession to the throne. After the event the Royal Family gathers on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch an RAF fly past.

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, the beautifully illustrated pieces are made from the highest quality 100% recycled board and therefore a pleasure to work with again and again.

Steve Crisp was educated around the late seventies at St. Martins School of Art, London and at a time when many young students were graduating from college with new styles and ideas. He is a fine example of someone who has gone on from that period to become a well-established, internationally known, award winning illustrator.


He has a large and diverse catalogue of work especially from the eighties and nineties, many of which have become collector’s pieces.
Steve has managed to adapt well to the changing needs of illustration especially with the introduction of digital techniques ten years or so ago.
