Fifteenth-century Illuminated Tarots, Musée Français de la Carte à Jouer, IssylesMoulineaux, France

An outstanding exhibition on “Fifteenth-century Illuminated Tarots” («Tarots enluminés») is on its way at the French Playing-Card Museum, Issy-les-Moulineaux. It will open on 16 December 2020 until 14 March 2021. 

The cream of these precious painted tarot cards will be on show, coming from many European and American museums and libraries, with some other works of the Renaissance. A team of historians and art historians, led by Thierry Depaulis, have reassessed these cards and have dramatically revisited their attributions and datings. A superb catalogue will present these findings.
In mid-February 2021 an international conference will be held at Issy around these illuminated tarots.
