Tarot Pierrot is the white-clad companion to Tarocchino Arlecchino. This deck stars the iconic Pierrot, another character of the Commedia dell’arte, friend and rival to Harlequin. While Harlequin’s origins may be demonic, Pierrot’s are more human. And thanks to modern painters and poets, he has developed into a more nuanced and romantic role, with both buffoonish and sinister undertones. I’m looking forward to exploring Pierrot through this project! I am starting with the court cards, which I will fill in below as I go.
