Playing Card Art: Queens by Carlyn Beccia

11 Apr

The Queen of Diamonds depicts Agnes Sorel, mistress to Charles VII. Agnes Sorel was the first woman to introduce the fashion for wearing diamonds. (Diamonds were typically only worn by men until Miss Sorel decided she wanted some bling around her neck).These playing cards were inspired by the The Visconti Tarot (also know at the Cary-Yale deck), one of the oldest set of playing cards in existence.” ~ Carlyn Beccia

The Queen of Hearts with her quill depicts Veronica Franco, a Renaissance courtesan and famous poet who broke her share of hearts. These playing cards were inspired by the The Visconti Tarot (also know at the Cary-Yale deck), one of the oldest set of playing cards in existence.” ~ Carlyn Beccia
