Description
 
This magnificently illustrated catalogue documents a landmark exhibition of more than sixty of the finest extant Tibetan works from museums and private collections around the world. These dazzling paintings on cloth and other objects dating from the eleventh to the fifteenth century--a formative period when Tibet enjoyed extraordinary cultural achievements--are brought together here for the first time, and many of them are previously unpublished.

The authors analyze style, iconography, provenance, and date; the profound cultural ties between Tibet and eastern India as well as Tibet and Nepal; and the painting techniques of the period. The volume includes a bibliography, index, glossary, and map.
