A combination of playing cards and picture book with a treasure trove of facts. By the creator of The Renaissance Art Game, which has been hailed as the most effective educational art game on market, and is being carried at such major museums as The Metropolitan Museum, The Louvre, The Getty Museum, and Philadelphia Museum of Art. The Impressionist Art Game, a card deck and a book set, brings to life an art movement that would dramatically influence the course of twentieth century art. With the 32 museum-quality cards you can play two classic games of strategy, memory, art appreciation by collecting all four paintings by each of eight Impressionist artists included: Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cassett, Pissarro, Manet, Morisot, and Caillebotte. The game's companion book features dramatic, full-colour photos and a lively text the reveals fascinating facts such as the origin of the movement's name (from a nasty critic who wanted to insult them) and memorable quotes such as Renoir's statement I want my red to sound like a bell. It has been written to appeal to both children and adults-an ideal blend of fun and learning.
