Adventure games featuring famous artwork?

What adventure games, in the broad sense, can you think of that feature famous (classic) artwork? Being an obvious fan of adventure games as well as a sucker for art, I’d love to see these two worlds combined.

Today I came across Layers of Fear. The following link provides an incomplete list of paintings used in the game: https://layersoffear.fandom.com/wiki/The_Paintings
The game itself appears to be mediocre though according to reviews. Anyone who can speak from experience?

And what other games come to mind?

Scratches has some famous paintings in the mansion.

i wouldnt recommend at all, I played half an hour of it and then uninstall, delete!. for example; interacting with the environment is terrible, no indication for which’s a hotspot or not, you need to walk close to it and try to interact, and let us not talk about the graphics and animation as there nothing good there to remember.

The Carol Reed game Bosch’s Damnation. It is not one of the better Carol Reed games but I still enjoyed it.

The Last Express - Beethoven Freeze by Klimt, The Red Gaze by Arnold Schonberg, Sin by Franz Stuck.
Zork Nemesis - The Toilet of Venus by Velasquez
Temujin: A Supernatural Adventure - takes place in a fictional museum with lots of real-life paintings.

There is an early case in Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis in the National Gallery which features real paintings, too many to mention. All are pre-Victorian, obviously.

Four Last Things is indeed a great game, as it is made by using high-resolution scans of the renaissance era paintings. The creator of it is also doing another game in the same style at the moment, The Procession to Calvary.

We are tranlating Four Last Thing into Spanish. Gorgeous.

It’s an oldie, but Monet: Mystery of the Orangery uses scenes from Monet’s paintings.

There’s a lot of great classic art in Gabriel Knight 3 which somehow compensates for some letdowns brought by early blocky 3D.

Wow, some excellent suggestions, thanks everyone! Exactly what I was looking for. Will definitely purchase Four Last Things and look into the others Wink

Culpa Innata has a bunch of art here and there. I’m mostly mentioning it since it often felt kinda out of place (and the heroine has a real weird taste).

Grey Matter has a bunch of art spread around, but I couldn’t say (or remember) whether it was anything famous or whether it was all original. Same for Still Life (given the name it had to be mentioned, right?). Kathy Rain also has some important art, but I think that’s “original”.
