Message from the Gallery

Visconti-Sforza Tarot Deck

Many Tarot historians consider this deck as the most ancient of all Tarot decks. The term "Visconti-Sforza" refers indeed to more than ten decks, which are unfortunately incomplete. These collections represent one of our museum and library wealth all around the globe.


The beauty of its imagery, the fineness of its design and the use of precious material such as gold, not only tell us about the life of these rich Italian families, but make of this deck a true piece of art.



As for all Tarot decks displayed in the Arcanas Gallery, you can open several cards at once et move them around on your computer screen.

You can also see a Commented Version of this gallery where the arcanas are accompanied by their positive and negative attributes.
However, these few keywords do not reflect all the possible reading levels for each arcana and they do not offer a synthesis of their interconnectedness either. These commentaries do not take into consideration the variations that exist between the Tarot decks presented in the Arcanas Gallery. Those variations can bring the interpreter into various directions and sometime they could be radically different.

The images of the Tarot within the Gallery are here as a source of visual inspiration and for your information. If you wish, you can find on this page links that will provide you with practical information regarding where to buy some of these Tarot decks.
