It's good overall. I've just worked my way through all the "Artist" questions. As someone whose knowledge of art basically used to extend to "the Mona Lisa is by Da Vinci", I can say this deck is rather helpful.

Are there a handful of duplicates as one commented mentioned? Yes, maybe 3, from my learning the deck.
Are there inconsistencies in artist names? On occasion. Sometimes it's "Gian Lorenzo Bernini" sometimes it's "Gianlorenzo Bernini" sometimes it's just "Bernini". There are a handful of pretty obvious typos. As long as you aren't too hard on yourself I'm sure you'll be fine.

The "Periods/Movements" section of questions is a little more off-putting as works seem to be labeled rather inconsistently. As an example, one piece by Kenneth Noland, for instance, is labeled "Color Field, Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism". Another similarly-styled piece by the same artist is merely labeled "Color Field". As someone with minimal familiarity with art, I ASSUME the second piece is also one of abstract expressionism and probably minimalism. But it's hard to be sure, and it seems as though I may spend unreasonable amounts of time reciting all three, see the card actually contains only one, and uncomfortably conclude the other pieces I mentioned must also apply. Or, I produce only "color field" and decide that's adequate.

So yes, I'll give it a thumbs-up, but it's not without caveats.

UPDATES:
"Periods/Movements" is not a section to study extensively or memorize to perfection. For one, labeling of periods/movements is rather inconsistent, as mentioned above. Secondly, it simply isn't worth the time reviewing periods/movements for every single art card when almost every piece by an artist is going to be labeled the same genre (minus perhaps Picasso, whose pieces are labeled Blue/Rose etc.). Finally, given how inconsistent and probably inaccurate the labels are, it's not as though you can have THAT much confidence a particular piece of art is or isn't something else. I'd flip through the reviews for 100 cards, maybe, then probably delete.

Fantastic idea for a deck.

Overall I like this deck, but I came here to note a piece of bad data: The painting labeled "Bathsheba at her bath" by Rembrandt is wrong. Rembrandt did do a painting by that name (and some variations with similar names), but the image attached to that card is Artemisia Gentileschi's version.

- Contains a number of duplicates
- Inconsistent artist names
- Answer cards often contain too much information
- Splitting this into 3 decks seems odd
