See Inside


Play this fast-paced game to collect sets of cards and put on your own big art show with the aim to be the first to ‘put on a show’ by getting three and four cards of a kind. Each card reproduces one of 50 major works of art by Michelangelo, Velázquez, Degas, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Dalí, Warhol and others. As well as key information, such as artist and date, the cards also use symbols and colours to indicate which Movement and Theme the work represents. There are twelve Movements – Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassicism, Romanticism, Realism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Surrealism and Pop Art – and six Themes – People, Places, Objects, Animals, Story and Religion.

With My Big Art Show you will become familiar with great art works and movements from the last five centuries, and be able to recognize the styles and themes that paintings share.
