Collection of Rubin Museum of Art: Painting Gallery I

RMA Main Page | Rubin Museum of Art Website | RMA Quick Guide | Google Art Project: Rubin Museum

"The Rubin Museum, New York, is among the top five museums in the world for Himalayan art. It has one of the finest collections found anywhere in the world. In both North America and Europe there are only a handful of museums with the same quality and breadth as the Rubin Museum.

The comparable museums to the Rubin are the Los Angeles County Museum, Asian Art Museum San Francisco, Guimet Musee National in Paris and the Museum of Culture in Basel, Switzerland.

In India, the Tibet House Museum has a comparable but smaller collection focusing on Tibetan art, as well as the Zanabazar Museum in Ulan Bator, Mongolia, again focusing on Mongolian created art.

The Rubin Museum is also the most documented and published collection of Himalayan art among all of the museum and private collections anywhere."
