Thanglha Tsewang (1902-1989), an artist and teacher. This publication is one of the first, possibly 'the' first, to highlight the life and works of a 20th century individual Tibetan artist - shattering the common Western notion that Tibetan artists are unknown and egoless.
Thanglha Tsewang first learned how to draw at age 10 from his uncle and was very much encouraged in his studies by the famous Katog Situ. Later, he became a monk and was very closely associated with Palpung Monastery in Eastern Tibet. Over the course of his life he created a large body of works, primarily paintings and in the style of Eastern Tibet - many of which are reproduced in the publication.
Many of these paintings are also represented on the Himalayan Art Resources website.
