Description

Portraiture-the art of capturing an individual's likeness-is a genre that traverses cultures, eras, and media. This intriguing deck of cards brings together a handpicked selection of striking portraits from across The Met collection, including the Portrait of Shun'oku Myoha (ca. 1383), Juan de Pareja (1650) by Velázquez, Sargent's Madame X (1883-84), a commemorative portrait of a Hemba chief (Singiti) (19th-early 20th century), and Van Gogh's Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat (1887), among others.

What better way to learn the language of art than with The Met, home to 5,000 years of art and artifacts? From Animals to Armor to the Arts of Asia, our decks feature a selection of the magnificent treasures housed within this world-famous museum. Available in 9 styles each deck contains 52 of The Met's most compelling exhibits along with key trivia.
