239 pages. The second publication in the "Masterworks of Tibetan Painting Series." With the destruction of India's Buddhist monasteries in 1203, Tibet lost its main source of artistic inspiration. Nepal was the only nearby surving center of traditional arts, where Newar artists of the Kathmandu Valley had formed their own artistic style. Originally basing their work on Indian artistic models, the Newar gradually developed their own style demonstrating their excellence in painting, sculpture, and woodworking. These talents were not lost on the Tibetans, who copied and learned from their neighbors as the style spread throughout Tibet. This style, now known as Beri, flourished for more than four centuries, reaching its height from 1360 to 1460, when it was adopted as Tibet's universal painting style. This is a very well produced volume with essays covering aspects of the subject accompanied by high quality color illustrations, many full-page. Hardcover with jacket, in excellent clean condition. 12 by 10 inches. Bookseller Inventory # 7884
