In the Service of The Buddha: Tibetan Furniture from the Hayward Family Collection

Ahmanson Building, Level 4
Los Angeles County Museum of Art

March 27, 2010–April 3, 2011

Tibetan furniture was primarily made for use in Buddhist monasteries and households. Typically painted with brilliant mineral pigments, it is often further adorned with rich gilding and designs made of applied gesso. Organized by LACMA and curated by Stephen Markel, South and Southeast Asian art, this exhibition features selections from the Hayward Family Collection, the premier assemblage of Tibetan furniture in the United States. Distinguished by its quality and depth, the collection includes masterpieces of virtually every important type of Tibetan furniture.
