Tibetan Painting: The Jucker Collection is a phenomenally wondrous book filled with photographs of ancient Tibetan artwork treasures. Every single two-page spread has a full-page photograph of a grand artwork on the left, and a page of Hugo Kreijger's descriptive text commentary specific to that particular painting on the right. The text goes into minute detail with regard to the mortals and deities depicted in each work, the historical significance, and the extrapolated origin of every piece. a great many of the works naturally relate to Buddhism, and the first fifteen plates are collectively referred to as "Buddhas and Bodhisattvas." There are 72 plates total. An ideal "Memorial Fund" acquisition selection choice for academic and community library collections, Tibetan Painting: The Jucker Collection is enthusiastically recommended for anyone with an interest in Tibetan art and culture.
