The Met Playing Cards -- Portraits

Out of stock




The Met presents this one-of-a-kind deck of playing cards inspired by the Museum's collection of portraits. Portraiture—the art of capturing an individual's likeness—is a genre that traverses cultures, eras, and media. This intriguing deck brings together a handpicked selection of striking portraits from across The Met collection, including the Portrait of Shun'oku Myoha (ca. 1383) by an unidentified Japanese artist, Juan de Pareja (1650) by Velázquez (Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez) (Spanish, 1599–1660), John Singer Sargent's (American, 1856–1925) Madame X (1883–84), a commemorative portrait of a Hemba chief (Singiti) (Hemba peoples, 19th–early 20th century), and Vincent van Gogh's (Dutch, 1853–1890) Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat (1887), among others.
