The Richard R. & Magdalena Ernst Collection of Himalayan Art grew from a lifetime passion for Tibetan art and culture. Featuring eighty-eight paintings spanning the twelfth — nineteenth century, this magnificent collection is an homage to the discerning eye of the collectors. Many of the deities celebrated in the paintings are echoed in the forms of Sotheby’s Indian, Himalayan & Southeast Asian Works of Art auction. The auction includes magnificent Himalayan bronzes from private collections, Buddhist ritual objects, classical Indian sculpture and more.
