Rosenwald Tarot


This the full version of this deck which is based on an uncut sheet of playing cards kept at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Another print can be found in the collection of the Deutsches Spielkartenmuseum.

On the National Gallery sheet, the printed cards are reversed in a mirror image. Our version reverses it back because the Deutsches Spielkartenmuseum sheet clearly shows the trumps printed in the correct orientation.

The Dutch sheet offers an important clue concerning its origin and date because it is associated with a sheet belonging to a book printed in Perugia in 1501. The most common theories point to a Florentine origin, dating as far back as the XVth century to the early XVIth century.
