Automotive playing cards, designed by Mr. Radoslaw Radziejewski to commemorate the 100th anniversary of world motorization (1993). Later on, Mercerdes Benz used this pattern for their promotional gift packs. The reverses shown here were prepared for an exhibition of impressionist paintings in Poland, in 2001. Dutch painters were presented at the exhibition. The cards were sold in museum stores.
