They say: The creation of a new Tarot deck is always a
- challenge. The artists who put themselves to this test know this all too well, having had to maintain coherency of style,
- line, and color for 78 images. But before creating the images, a project, which is simultaneously traditional as well as
- innovative, is necessary because the Arcana must always be recognizable. The problem becomes greater when an
- artist of the calibre of Leonardo da Vinci is used as a point of reference; one risks falling into plagiarism or banalization.
- But the Leonardo Tarot has overcome the challenge. The Major Arcana, created in 1992 by lassen Ghiuselev following
- my iconographic indications, may be inserted among the 'Leonardesque' masterpieces. In fact, as the well-known art
- historian Marco Bussagli wrote, 'the Bulgarian painter has completely succeeded in restoring the charm of
- Leonardesque chiaroscuro using an impeccable technique'.
Today, ten years later, the deck is offered in a
- complete version thanks to another Bulgarian artist, Atanas Atanassov, who took steps to create the 56 Minor Arcana.
- When observing this new series, one remains spellbound by the seriousness with which the Eastern European schools
- prepare new generations of artists, making them capable of reinterpreting the Art (let's emphasize the uppercase A) with
- the 'lightness' of those who have perfectly acquired both the aesthetic precepts as well as the most refined techniques.
- This is why it seems to me that the entire deck should be attributed the judgment expressed in turn by Bussagli: 'The
- Leonardo Tarot is worthy of admiration. It is not simply an academic exercise but something more, almost as if the works
- by the genius Vinci are able to reveal here their most intimate nature, that of the Arcana of the intellect and the spirit'.
