Synopsis : This illustrated book completes a three-volume series cataloguing the Asian art collection at the Norton Simon Museum. The volume includes some 180 religious artworks from Sri Lanka, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Burma and Laos, as well as Ban Chiang pottery and rain drums. Stone and metal sculptures from Cambodia and Thailand are an area of particular strength in this collection. A substantial introduction to the volume provides pertinent information about the cultural milieu that inspired the creation of these artworks. Each individual object is then illustrated - some with more than one image - and discussed in detail in the catalogue section of the book. While some of the masterpieces may be familiar to scholars, the vast majority of these outstanding works are published here for the first time.

Critique: These lavishly illustrated books are the first and second in a series of three cataloguing the Asian art collection at the Norton Simon Museum. Each work of art is fully illustrated and discussed, and both volumes include substantial introductions that shed light on the aesthetic and metaphysical underpinnings of these masterpieces.

Published in association with the Norton Simon Art Foundation
