About the Author:

ARTSCU

From Library Journal:

This book can be read as a straightforward catalog of the extensive collection of Buddha figures in the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore, where Woodward is curator of Asian art. In another sense it is the tale of a sensitive young Baltimore banker, who was seduced by Thailand in 1945 and went on to assemble a far-reaching group of bronze and stone images for their aesthetic appeal. This catalog also attempts to give a solid scientific basis to the categorization of Thai sculpture into its various eras and regions?a process previously based on the more subjective grounds of stylistic analysis. In addition to the fine illustrations and the extensive technical data, seven chapters provide a chronological discussion of the development of Thai sculpture between the Dvaravati kingdom of the seventh century and the fall of Ayutthaya in 1767. In all, this is the single most important work on the sculpture of Thailand published to date. Recommended for all art libraries.?David McClelland, Philadelphia
