Fine art has often been portrayed on playing cards, usually as a card back design but, occasionally, on face cards as well. We've begun a list of artists whose work is represented on playing cards and tarot cards, and hope to continue to add to this list as our researches continue. In cases where decks listed are still in print and available for purchase, we've provided links.
Fine Art Playing Cards

Seurat Playing Cards
Piatnik of Austria has numerous playing cards featuring fine art, including some we've listed above.
Tarot Cards - Tarot symbolism is a tempting theme for some artists.
Bosch Tarot - Not really done by Hieronymus Bosch, but in the style of Bosch. Call it "Bosch-like." (Or "Bosch Lite".)
Salvador Dali Universal Tarot Cards - A $100 tarot deck. Impressive, eh? But good art doesn't come cheaply . . .
