Resumen

ALVAREZ PORTUGAL, Vanessa. A Model for the Image. The Magician of the Tarot Visconti. An. Inst. Investig. Estét [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.112, pp.133-179. ISSN 0185-1276.  https://doi.org/10.22201/iie.18703062e.2018.112.2635.

This article presents an iconological analysis of a playing card from the 15th century deck now known as the Visconti Tarot. This card became named The Magician following the reiterated use of the ico­ nographic­ motive in later tarot decks. Earlier and contemporary iconographic­ models of this card have been found in images from manuscripts and prints with astrological, alchemical and symbolic contents dating from the 14th and the 15th centuries. The present study considers the importance these traditions had in the cultural development of the early Italian Renaissance.

Palabras llave : Tarot; astrological images; alchemy; Lombard art; early Renaissance.
