A visually stunning inaugural catalog of the Rubin Museum of Art, New York, scheduled to open in October 2004. This 104-page volume celebrates and explores the artistic exchange
between Tibet and China from the 13th to the 19th century, taking the theme of Buddhist Arhat painting as a concise lens through which to view the wider ramifications of artistic and cultural interaction. Examining the exchange of motifs, compositions, and modes of representation, "Paradise & Plumage" reveals the creative reassignment of meaning when Tibetan artists appropriate aspects that may derive from older Chinese traditions and vice versa.
