Tarot painted from Salvador Dali













Tarot painted from Salvador Dali

Dali assembled and painted 78 collages in his unique surrealist vision creating 22 Major Arcana and 56 Minor Arcana. An incredible deck for historians, art lovers, and collectors.

Given Dali’s own talents, it is surprising that this deck consists of collage compositions which incorporate the works of other artists. Dali adds his own touch to each design by using washes of color and semi-abstract shapes. In some cases, these forms seem strangely inconsistent with the rest of the artwork; in other cases, his additions create something new and homogeneous. For example, Dali adds a very simplistic figure next to a detailed painting in The Fool. His version of The Hierophant, however, is much more attractive even though he adds only a simple green background and painted halos.

The Dali Universal Tarot is a comparatively expensive deck, although its packaging was given special attention by the publishers: the cards themselves are edged in gold foil and the sturdy box which hold the cards is encased in a burgundy velvet slipcase.

The cards have full gilt edges. Booklet of instructions in English, French, and Spanish. Deluxe packaging.The deck was published by Distributions d’Art Surrealista and Comos Naipes of Spain in 1984, the year of Dali’s eightieth birthday.
