Our puzzle features a reproduction of a 1941 watercolor in the Museum's collection by artist Adolf Dehn (American, 1895–1968). His watercolor Spring in Central Park
is one of several bucolic views of the skyline and the park at different seasons. Looking south from Sheep Meadow toward midtown Manhattan, Dehn references the distinctive architecture of two large hotels along Central Park South—the Hampshire House and the Essex House, while the Empire State Building rises in the distance.

Art HistoryThe painter-lithographer Adolf Dehn (American, 1895–1968) was known for his humorous satires and social commentaries on modern life. As a young artist, he concentrated on printmaking, creating over 600 lithographs before 1936; afterward, he focused increasingly on watercolor. While living in New York City, Dehn captured scenes from Harlem nightclubs, burlesque theaters, Central Park, and high society.
