Contributions by leading specialists and full-color illustrations provide historical and artistic context for diverse artworks from India, the Near East, the Himalaya region, and Southeast Asia. In up to date years, the Dallas Museum of Art has expanded its choice of South Asian art from a small choice of Indian temple sculptures to almost 500 works, including Indian Hindu and Buddhist sculptures, Himalayan Buddhist bronze sculptures and ritual objects, artwork from Southeast Asia, and decorative arts from India’s Mughal period.
Works of art within the collection have origins from the previous Ottoman empire to Java, and architectural pieces suggest the grandeur of buildings within the Indian tradition.This volume details the cultural and artistic significance of more than 140 featured works, which range from Tibetan thangkas and Indian miniature paintings to stone sculptures and bronzes. Relating these works to each other through interconnecting narratives and cross-references, scholars and curators provide a broad cultural history of the region.
