Category Description for Art Playing Cards:

These versatile, inexpensive decks of playing cards will delight art lovers-and come in handy for art appreciation class, too. Each deck contains a full set of playing cards, with the traditional images of kings, queens, jacks, and the like being replaced by 54 full color reproductions of famous paintings. You will recognize many of these classics from the Western world - Mona Lisa, Ophelia, Henry VIII - and works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Van Gogh and many other great artists are well represented. For reference, each card lists the name of the painting, artist, and year below the artwork image. The Art Pack contains reproductions of entire paintings, while the Art Detail Pack zooms in on portions of larger paintings. (There is some overlap between paintings covered in the decks, but for the most part, the decks cover different works of art.) Please note that a small amount of nudity appears in some of the artwork. The Art Pack set contains five cards with (classically tasteful) nudity, such as Botticelli's Birth of Venus and Michelangelo's Creation of Adam. The Art Detail set contains less nudity, but one of the Joker cards is an image of a woman's bare backside (Boucher's Reclining Girl). ~ Lisa

Smaller than regular sized playing cards
I ordered both this pack and the Art Pack Playing Cards. The Art Pack playing cards are normally sized playing cards, which made it even more flustering that the Impressionist Masterpieces Playing Cards are so much smaller.
