The selection of these paintings, which date between the late twelfth and early twentieth centuries, was made on the basis of their stylistic or iconographic rarity or because of their sheer beauty. With the exception of a few masterpieces, this is the first time they have been published. Tibetan Painting brings interesting and new material for the study of the sacred art of Tibet. Starting with paintings of the historical Buddha and his emanations and followed by bodhisattvas, deities and protectors, this collection is especially strong in representation of fierce divinities of which 30 are reproduced and the book concludes with rare Bardo paintings plus important scroll paintings from the Bon tradition.
