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 #
Synopsis: The Newar painting style (Beri) in Tibet, which originated in Nepal, is the most recent of two early Indian-inspired painting styles to take hold in Tibet. The style flourished in Tibet for about four centuries, from the late 12th to the early 17th century. Alone among styles, it was adopted universally across Tibet for a century at its height (1360-1460). Later in its development, some of the best-known thangkas in this style were commissioned by abbots of Ngor Monastery, an important Sakyapa monastery in Tsang Province.
Most previous scholars linked the paintings in this style exclusively with the Sakyapa religious school and Tsang Province, if not with the monastery of Ngor. In addition to exploring the powerful aesthetic appeal of the Beri style, one of the main goals of this publication is to overcome the erroneous limiting of the style to the Sakyapa and to demonstrate its full historical and religious extent. Another main goal is to introduce a method for analyzing structure and lineages in Tibetan paintings.
In addition to exploring the powerful aesthetic appeal of the Beri style, one of the main goals of this publication is to overcome the erroneous limiting of the style to the Sakyapa and to demonstrate its full historical and religious extent.
