No. The woman in the middle with scarf is Tarot de Marseille II. Depending on who you call the earliest.. Chosson, Madenié or whomever.. that is the oldest Tarot de Marseille II.EUGIM wrote:Another point of interest I think is about the XXI card.
Here we have clearly a woman at the center of the mandorla,as we see at Conver,and not at Noblet and Dodal,and also not at both Payen and also Chafard which is the closest to Conver being of 1747
So again a Tarot de Marseille 1 pattern in 1709
The oldest Tarot de Marseille I style.. a figure with a cape instead of a scarf, and perhaps it being a man, is the Noblet and the Vieville. 1650. (although, I think the World card from Sforza Castle is, if not older, based on an older card) Next in line is either the Dodal or the Payen in the early 1700s.
The Chafard is, as you say, late.
