The Complete Collection of the Treasures of the Palace Museum Volume 59, Beijing Palace Museum.

This volume illustrates 263 of the best thangkas from the thousands kept in the Palace Museum, Beijing. Two main categories are represented: thangka paintings and woven embroidered thangkas. The majority of these thangkas are published here for the first time, with some not having been seen publicly before. Each thangka has been catalogued and certified as genuine by the Palace, with details provided including such things as the date it was added to the Palace collection, where it came from, its title, who examined it, evidence of its authenticity, etc. This is an invaluable tool for those studying the history of 17th and 18th century Tibetan paintins. It is also an ideal reference book for those studying Tibetan Buddhist imagery in particular, or art history in general.
