Description About the author Contents
Introduces the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Tibetan hanging scroll paintings (tangkas) in the collection of the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College

This lavishly illustrated book with an extensive catalogue and three essays by noted scholars, introduces the outstanding collection of eighteen Tibetan paintings in the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College. Among them are two groups of eighteenth-century tangkas of rare and exceptional quality from Central Tibet; a third group presents diverse themes in the bold folk styles of Eastern Tibet. The tangkas open up to the general public, students, and scholars the esoteric world of Tibetan Buddhist painting by providing a glimpse into the profound methods of practice and astonishing beauty of the art derived in the quest for enlightenment.
