Worlds of Transformation. April 1, 1999, Harry N. Abrams. Hardcover in English. Libraries near you: WorldCat.

From the highly respected authors of Abrams' acclaimed Wisdom and Compassion: The Sacred Art of Tibet comes a new volume devoted to 200 sublime Tibetan thangka paintings from the premier New York collection of Shelley and Donald Rubin. The works span the 12th through 20th centuries and the spectrum of Tibetan artistic schools; each one is reproduced in color and most are published here for the first time. This magnificent volume presents an analysis of each painting in terms of iconography and religious meaning, style, regional lineage, and sources

By Marylin Rhie and Robert . Thurman, with an essay by David Jackson. The latest thought on Tibetan art and a new study of 200 thangka paintings which span the spectrum of Tibetan artistic schools from the 12th to the 20th century.

By Marylin Rhie and Robert . Published by Tibet House for the Rubin Museum, distributed by Harry N. Abrams Co.

Tibetans create art to open windows from the ordinary, earthly world onto a perfected universe. Like Tibet itself, Tibetan art has been misunderstood and underestimated. Their tangka paintings, sculptures, and mandalas are regarded as points to transition from the coarse world we know to the perfected enlightenment realm of pure wisdom and compassion.

This is a big, heavy book, beautifully illustrated and authoritatively written. I am finding it a boon in my research on Tibetan art, for it covers most every subject, style, and region of Tibet. My copy came from the library--wish I could afford to buy it!

A great book on its own, even better as a companion to earlier book, " Wisdom and Compasion".
