Discover Art Playing Cards from Lingo
Here's a really unique gift that will appeal to dads that love to play cards and dads that are fond of art, or both! Lingo has a set of nine decks of cards that feature artwork inspired by the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, fondly referred to as The Met. Each of the nine decks of Discover Art Playing Cards has a different theme: Masks, Animals, Sculptures, Nudes, Portraits, Botanicals, Armor, Art of Asia and Met Icons. A different artwork is featured on each card; there are no repeats. And while the cards are fun just to look at you can also learn about each featured Met treasure as there is trivia information on each card. For example, in the Masks deck, the name of each mask is given along with the era and place it comes from and the peoples who made it. Similar information if given on the Portraits deck which features art by the likes of van Gogh, Rembrandt, El Greco, Renoir, Rubens, Klimt, Vermeer, Monet and Cezanne and in some cases an unidentified artist. Decks can be purchased individually or as the full set of nine. And don't be surprised if dad wants to go to the Met after enjoying these playing cards! Orders can be placed here.
