Are there any games with classic paintings and art which would have an educational value of teaching the artist names and possibly the year of the work creation? (I am not looking for modern art).

So far I heard only about "Masters Gallery" but it seems there are only about 30 unique cards (the rest are duplicate).

Starving Artists has famous paintings on cards, but (a) I don't believe there is any attempt at educational info aside of the art itself and (b) its not actually shipping yet.

There are several versions... a vintage game but readily available on that internet auction site.

Pastiche has classic paintings. Also teaches a bit about color mixing.

Operation F.A.U.S.T. has famous art, but the educational value is more about the history of the pieces stolen during the war.

Each painting does have the title, artist's name, and year.

They say it's still on track to ship in December.

The PnP files are available from the kickstarter (June 5 update) if you want to look at them.

There might be Top Trumps/The Game of Authors decks where each card has a classic painting on it. There's an Art Rummy deck from the Metropolitan Museum of Art but it only covers their own collections.

Look no farther than Siena. The entire board is a piece of art, as well as all the cards. And it's a great game as well.

Thank you for excellent ideas! Musee is indeed exactly what I was looking for. I also found Expos from 1998 but it seems it's super rare.
