A list of games featuring the Fine Arts is long overdue. Theaney started these Museum Gift lists in January, but pretty much stopped them.
So, with apologies to him, I am going to contribute this one.

While the art contained in the game itself leaves much to be desired, this is actually a GOOD game!

A game about stealing art and getting away with it. And it features famous artists. Too bad it's OOP--wouldlove to find that sold at a museum. It's a clever game, too.

The theme for this game has players placing pieces on the board to create a work of art/painting. Although it is basically an abstract with a pasted on art theme - this is a fun game that I would recommend.

Not for the theme, there many games that could be found for their sheer beauty. More on this list:

There are a few Thomas Fackler games that I see at many art museums. Some not listed on the geek. Just saw one last week at MassMOCA ( http://www.massmoca.org ) that was like the one listed, but for NYC architecture only.

Many (including myself) have fond memories of this game. Plus, it was their first exposure to some great paintings (and art criticism):

"What is that Gray Thing? Is that Art?"

According to Sid Sacksons "A Gamut of Games": Players circle the board, attempting to get works of art - attractive pictures are supplied - into complete sets, which increases their value. Sales between players are negitiated or set by a "markup" die.

These games have attractive theme and expensive bits but are marred by bad game design.

These people played it safe and essentially repackaged Memory in an attractive game.

Very nice bits, though not much of a game, essentially it is Art trivial pursuit with a mere 144 questions.

Is there another game in there maybe?.. Anyone???

This is a very nice Rummy set we picked up at Pic n' Save. It manages to feature nice art with a nice game.

Card games such as this are probably the best way to go for museums to publish game type souvenirs with minimum fuss.
