Objects Major Arcana: Leonora Carrington

Magic box. This wondrous deck of 22 tarot cards by surrealist Leonora Carrington was only discovered in 2018, ahead of the artist’s retrospective in her native Mexico. Drawing inspiration from the Tarot of Marseille and the popular Waite-Smith deck, Carrington brings her own approach to the Major Arcana. Each card bears iconic designs rendered in bright colours and gold and silver leaf – characteristic of the alluring, otherworldly imagery that has seen the artist’s work celebrated in recent decades.

For scholars, they provide a fascinating insight into the themes of Occultism that pervade her work. For fans of the artist, they’re a chance to be drawn deeper into the mystic realms of her paintings. We’re under the spell.
