  • For most lovers of Nepalese art, the Jucker collection will come as a revelation. The core of the collection was assembled during the 1960s in India, with a few well-judged additions in recent years filling in the remaining stylistic and iconographic lacunae. The collection as it stands gives excellent overall view of the painting tradition in the Kathmandu Valley from the thirteenth to the early twentieth century - including several extremely rare scrolls for which there are no comparable pieces in other private or public collections.

    This catalogue is the first to treat the Kathmandu Valley painting tradition. As such, its scrolls, bookcovers and sketchbooks are an indispensable resource for all students of Nepalese art.

    Hugo E. Kreijger

    Hugo Kriejger studied South, Southeast, and Central Asian art and archeology at the University of Amsterdam, where his main subjects were Tibetan and Nepalese Arts, and later, the arts and archeology of China, Japan, and Korea. He graduated in 1980. From then until 1997 he worked at Christies in Amsterdam as head of the India, Himalaya, and Southeast Asia Department, involved in sales in both Amsterdam and New York. In 1989 he organized an exhibition at the Ethnographic Museum, Rotterdam, on Tibetan Art from private Dutch collections and wrote the accompanying catalogue, Icons of Tibet. In 1992-93 he presented a photographic exhibition on the murals of Shalu at the Ethnographic Museum, Leiden and Breda, and wrote part of the accompanying catalogue. Presently, he is working on a Ph.D. on the murals of Shalu. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
