New Outlines & Image Sets

May 20, 2009 ·

Longchen Nyingtig Treasure Tradition Outline Page:
Images and art associated with the Longchen Nyingtig Treasure Tradition of Jigme Lingpa have been organized into a simple outline page. Many new image sets were created and a number of previously uncatalogued images have been identified during this quick study.


Cityscape & Monastery Paintings Outline Page:
More and more cityscape paintings are turning up in museum and private collections. They are interesting and maybe even fascinating. Some are more accurate than others and at least one appears to be painted from a photograph. Many are easily identified as Lhasa, Tashi Lhunpo or Samye Monastery. A few of them remain unidentified.

European & Asian Museums Updated

May 04, 2009 ·

The lists for both the European museums and the Asian museums have been updated. There are still many more to add and some have been listed without proper links. If you can think of any that we have missed then please e-mail us and let us know so that we can add them. For Mongolia only the main museums have been added. There are, possibly, twenty-three provinces and each has a provincial museum. India has many more museums with collections of Himalayan art than what we have listed. Documenting all of the Himalayan art in the world that resides in museum collections is an enormous and ongoing project.
