An Analysis of the Role of Cartomancers through Western Art

Description

“Bravo!”, “Thanks so much for organising this”, “Wonderful stuff – great to have the images and video clips”. These are just a few of the enthusiastic responses to this two-part webinar from  internationally-renowned Tarot author and teacher, Mary K. Greer. In these sessions, Mary takes us on an exploratory journey into the role of card readers over the centuries. Purchase a recording of the webinar which comprises two sessions, each 50 minutes in duration.

An historical record does exist in genre art that depicts ordinary people going about their everyday work and recreations. In this slide presentation and talk, Mary analyses the visual content of paintings, prints and postcards showing cartomancers from the 16th through early 20th century. She brings to light both the professional and recreational characteristics of those people who practised cartomancy and reveals their largely unseen and under-acknowledged role in everyday Western society.

It’s an empowering experience for card readers to see themselves as part of a long-lived profession that ultimately goes back to the oracles and diviners of ancient times.
