While known today primarily as a fortune telling or occult d eck\, the Tarot was born out of the intellectual and artistic developments of the Italian Renaissance. Links to the Tarot’s icons and symbology can be found in the popular arts and philosophy of this rich historic period. Inf luenced by alchemy\, Hermetic mysticism and the concept of Anima Mundi (the fifth element of life)\, the Tarot became a conversation between mystics a nd artists that has lasted over five centuries. This exhibition will illumi nate the 22 cards of the Tarot’s major arcana\, from the Fool to the World\ , presenting historic examples from early decks and relating them to other works of art from that era. It will continue with historic examples of the French deck known as The Tarot of Marseilles and early occult decks that bl oomed from this tradition. Popular twentieth century decks including the Wa ite-Smith Tarot\, and works of art by modern Tarot artists will be featured to provide a deeper understanding of the Tarot’s artistic legacy and messa ge of mystical transformation.
