Tibet House was established in 1965 by the 14th Dalai Lama for the purpose of preserving the unique cultural heritage of Tibet, as well as for providing a centre for Tibetan and Buddhist studies.

For an overview of the art holdings of Tibet House see the Tibet House Quick Guide. The collection of paintings have been placed in one large gallery which also serves as the Tibet House Collection Main Page (current page).

A separate page has been created for the Miscellaneous Paintings that are not that numerous compared with the sets of paintings. The strength of the Tibet House Collection is the vast number of sets - mostly complete. There is a small Textile Gallery and a separate Sculpture Gallery and Sculpture Outline Page.
