Title:Kathmandu Valley Painting The Jucker Collection
Author:Hugo E. Kreijger
Remarks:Colour Photographs, Notes, Glossary, Select Bibliography and Index.
Size:223 x 310 mm
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.
