Collection Highlights: The Rubin Museum of Art
Rubin Museum of Art
9.75 x 12.75", 253 pp, fully illustrated in color, board, cloth spine, New York, 2014.
This catalog features 108 works — an auspicious number in Tibetan culture with significance extending into Hinduism and even into popular Western culture—that were chosen by the curatorial team to offer a sense of the geographic, cultural, and chronological breadth of the Museum’s holdings. Stunning visuals are accompanied by brief descriptions that will speak to both lovers of art from the Himalayan region and those who are new to this rich tradition. A special fold-out panel presents the Museum’s Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room.
With contributions by Jan Van Alphen, Beth Citron, Karl Debreczeny, David Jackson, Christian Luczanits, Elena Pakhoutova, and Kathryn Selig Brown.
