Art Nouveau Tarot Deck
Deck used is my new Tarot Art Nouveau! External image. From inspection of the card, keywords I think of include grace, gentleness and growth. There are things that have already been accomplished, but still many areas to grow upon. I was kind of frustrated.
Card Images from the Tarot Art Nouveau
The Italian-published Tarot Art Nouveau is floral, ornate and lavishly decorated. It is a very uniform tarot with a very romantic, dashing style - women all young and beautiful, men mostly bulging muscle. Art Nouveau 'New Art' was a style of architecture and decoration, as well as an art movement, developed in Europe and the USA in the late nineteenth century. The style was characterised by ornate stylised patterns of leaves, flowers and vines. Art Nouveau was not limited to paintings - it was aimed at removing the barriers between 'major' and 'minor' arts, unifying art, and centring it around people, and influenced graphics, architecture, furniture and even jewellery design. The Tarot Art Nouveau was influenced and inspired by the Art Nouveau movement, and its coloured ink drawings on the cards are elegant, flowery and ornate.
