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
