Twelve paintings have been selected to represent the best of the collection from the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University. Only three paintings in the selection of twelve are single compositions while the rest are all part of greater sets of paintings numbering a dozen or more. The three most unique paintings are #31757, a Panchen Lama Life Story composition, #31770 a Six-armed form of Amoghapasha and #31763 a Karma Kagyu Lama, likely to be either Trehor Tulku or the 2nd Karma Thinlepa. All three paintings are from subject sets that were previously unknown.
