Mint, sealed deck of very nice cards undoubtedly made by Carta Mundi ("Printed in Belgium") c.1984, published by Aristoplay, Ltd. of the U.S., featuring paintings on each of the 52 playing cards by "13 Modern Masters," namely: Monet, Degas, Renoir, Seurat, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Braque, Picasso, Kirchner, Kandinsky, Klee, and Miro. Each painter is represented 4 times: all 4 Aces are by Miro, all 4 Kings by Klee, etc. Design credit – presumably for the backs and the Jokers – is given to Harlan Quist, a name perhaps best known as a book publishing company. The first 4 pictures are of the actual deck for sale in this listing; the remaining pictures are from an open deck previously sold in this shop.
The deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are quite large for playing cards, measuring 100mm x 65mm, and come in the original box. Also included is a pamphlet (or insert cards) with basic information about the painters and paintings on the cards.
As noted, the cards and box are mint and sealed.
Thanks for visiting.
