Mark Dylan Sieber posts a gallery of Renaissance tarot cards "hand-painted… with gold and silver gilt, as well as miniature Renaissance portraiture. Originally commissioned by the Viscontis, a Milanese family that dominated the cultural life of Northern Italy in the 14th and 15th centuries, the deck is one of the oldest sets in existence. The cards are attributed to Italian fresco painter Bonifacio Bembo, who finally completed the images in 1445.
