Himalayan art  

Mi Ŕ stato utilissimo all'inizio delle mie ricerche. Era l'unico libro si queste aree himalayane che permettesse di localizzare le opere d'arte. Esisteva una traduzione italiana oramai esaurita.

This publication is the first of a new series in the "UNESCO Art Books" collection. The series will illustrate themes characteristic of a particular culture, religion or style, regardless of national frontiers. Its essential purpose will be to relate the presentation of significant, and generally little known, works of art to the study and interpretation of cultures. In this volume, the geographical area of Himalaya is treated as a cultural crossroad, where a variety of influences have met, combined and persisted, with remarkable continuity, up to present times.
The points of view and the opinions expressed in this work are entirely those of the author.
