So Who Chose These Famous Paintings?
Lots of art historians and experts, in 17,000 pages of art history books! We reviewed 25 art history books (see below) used in AP art history, art appreciation, and college art history courses.
Then we tallied which paintings were used to exemplify the work of the most famous painters in Western art history from the 1400s through 1960s. We purchased image rights from art museums, secured introductory essays (written by art historians), added the facts above, and published them on hefty 4" by 6" sturdy Cards. The result? Masterpiece Cards.
