“Famous Paintings,” published by the Cincinnati Game Company in 1897, offered a variation on the popular “Authors”: the players accumulated four paintings instead of authors. The paintings are reproduced in rather muddy brown, with a dark purple border, and show the artistic taste of the late 19th century. Here, for example, is a painting by Rosa Bonheur, who specialized in animals, and whose reputation has fluctuated over the years. Her painting “The Horse Fair” still attracts admirers at the Met.
