About

In the early nineties, the internationally known Artist of 'Fantastic Naturalism', Carl-W. Roehrig, ventured to create 78 completely new Tarot paintings. 

In an interview about the challenge, he said the following: "The 78 tarot cards also contain 78 interesting topics that virtually challenge an artist artistically and intellectually. It is not without reason that top artists such as Dürer, Dali, Nicky de St. Phalle and many others artistically realised this thematic cycle."

The artist worked continuously for 19 months on the 78 paintings, almost 9 days a week and 26 hours a day, figuratively speaking: 'A mammoth task!'

Carl W. Roehrig: "I was more interested in the spiritual and the philosophical side of the tarot cards. All messages that deal with the spiritual nature of man, I find very interesting and they can not be stressed enough."

The Art Company represents the print collection of Carl-W. Roehrig with a full license agreement. We not only admire his incredible painting skills, but we feel that his interpretation of the tarot needs to be out in the world again.

The previous editions have been sold out for far too long. When deciding to rerelease the Roehrig Tarot, we felt that interpretations could be freshened up, a companion book written, and packaging created to suit this lovely creation by the Master of Colours. Additionally they are now translated into English.

The Book:

Volker Kubillus, who has written & published the "Thank You" book (see below) and other books in the past, created a new interpretation of each single tarot card based on the inspirations Carl-W. Roehrig gained while painting the original card paintings.

Thus was born the ‘Game of Inspiration’.

  • 110mm x 175mm
  • Fits neatly into the box

We further offer, for the first time, high quality canvas prints of the cards, in various sizes. Our aim is to offer the most aesthetically painted Tarot subjects, worldwide, and even prints as a 'Game of Inspiration’.

For this Kickstarter Carl-W. Roehrig will sign a limited number of prints personally.

The 'Thank You' Book:

This hardcover book gives insights into the subject of gratitude from eminent writers and philosophers. Each quotation is brought to life with specially selected paintings from the massive collection of works of Carl W.-Roehrig.

The Art Company:

The Art Company (www.the-art-company.co.uk) is a small team of dedicated art connoisseurs. Our group has the aim of publishing aesthetically pleasing art, which we see in the unique paintings of Carl-W. Roehrig and others.

By offering this new Tarot we would like to inspire others.

Risks and challenges

The new Roehrig Tarot will be printed in Germany with an established printing firm and shipped to England, from where it will be shipped on to you.

If you desire one of our digital prints, it will be produced within 2 weeks here in England, proofed and shipped to you in a protective roll without a frame.

In our experience of publishing, we understand that there can sometimes be hitches and delays in fulfilment but we are well poised to handle it and get you your rewards.

Volker has a lot of experience in publishing, having already published several titles, including the 'Thank You' Book in the past.
Volker & Carl-W. Roehrig have a long history of working together, having previously published the original Roehrig Tarot and other works.
