Synopsis: An indispensable source for all lovers of the art of the Himalayan region, Kathmandu Valley Paintings provides visual access to the Ernst and Angela Jucker collection of Nepalese painting. The core of this peerless collection was assembled by the Juckers during the 1960s in India, with a few well-judged additions in recent years filling in the remaining stylistic and iconographic lacunae. The collection gives an excellent overall view of the painting tradition in the Kathmandu Valley from the thirteenth through nineteenth centuries – including several extremely rare scrolls for which there are no comparable pieces in other private or public collections. The Jucker collection is a revelatory glimpse at the story of Nepalese painting for every lover of Asian art, both scholar and novice.
About the Author: Hugo Kriejger studied South, Southeast, and Central Asian art and archeology at the University of Amsterdam, where his main subjects were Tibetan and Nepalese Arts, and later, the arts and archeology of China, Japan, and Korea. He graduated in 1980. From then until 1997 he worked at Christies in Amsterdam as head of the India, Himalaya, and Southeast Asia Department, involved in sales in both Amsterdam and New York. In 1989 he organized an exhibition at the Ethnographic Museum, Rotterdam, on Tibetan Art from private Dutch collections and wrote the accompanying catalogue, Icons of Tibet. In 1992-93 he presented a photographic exhibition on the murals of Shalu at the Ethnographic Museum, Leiden and Breda, and wrote part of the accompanying catalogue. Presently, he is working on a Ph.D. on the murals of Shalu.
