Tarot & art history
Before they were associated with the telling of destinies, the allegorical images commonly seen in tarot were among treasured playing cards enjoyed by royal families and aristocrats. Some of these heirloom pieces, and other valuable tarot compilations, are archived in prominent historical, artistic and cultural institutions such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, The Morgan Library & Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA, Yale University's Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library in New Haven, CT and the Academia di Bella Arti in Bergamo, Italy, to name just a few. Art historians have taken an interest in these cards as the earliest tarot images were probably hand painted by some of the best artists of its day. Moreover, these valued items hint at the evolution of the printing process as some of the tarot images were printed by traditional wood-block and/or stencil techniques that are virtually obsolete today. Its eventual use as a "divination" tool has cast shadows over tarot's creative formation. Yet, this metamorphosis cannot be ignored as tarot does incarnate a potent energy force that can provide some intelligence into the paradigms of self study.
"The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart."
