Mona Lisa, The Kiss & The Thinker: A Quiz Deck on the History of Art
With 48 fact-filled cards per package, Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information—all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards. Size: 3¼ x 4 in.
By Jack Van Zandt.
From BC-era mathematics to twentieth-century house construction, this Pomegranate pop quiz in a box has much more than paint on its palette. Musical influences, unusual coloring agents, scandals, and a brawl add details and texture as Mona Lisa, The Kiss & The Thinker tests your knowledge of the history of art.
On the front of each of the 48 Knowledge Cards, you’ll be presented with a textual sketch of a technique, an artist, a movement, a specific work of art, etc.—followed by a question or two or three. Your goal is to flesh out the canvas of each question with a well-crafted answer. Guidance and tutoring are available on the backs of the cards. The results are equally satisfying whether pursued solo in the studio or shared among the like-minded members of your school of art.
