Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810963876, Hardcover)

From the highly respected authors of Abrams' acclaimed Wisdom and Compassion: The Sacred Art of Tibet comes a new volume devoted to 200 sublime Tibetan thangka paintings from the premier New York collection of Shelley and Donald Rubin. The works span the 12th through 20th centuries and the spectrum of Tibetan artistic schools; each one is reproduced in color and most are published here for the first time.

This magnificent volume presents an analysis of each painting in terms of iconography and religious meaning, style, regional lineage, and sources. In addition, David Jackson discusses the paintings of the Kagyupa order in the Rubin Collection.

This volume continues the authors' groundbreaking efforts to understand the complexity of Tibetan art, and seeks to make these splendid and profound works accessible to a wider public.
