I have two beautiful frames pieces that I do not know anything about. They are professionally mounted and I cannot see any signatures. Can anyone tell me anything about these?

These are both Nepalese Buddhist paintings called Thangkas. They look to be from the second half of the 20th century because of style and also color palate and type of pigments. You can google Thangkas and Nepalese Thangkas and there is a lot of info. Tibetan Thangkas are more valuable. See completed auctions on eBay for some idea of wholesale value. I have a large collection, so I have seen many of these in the past. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
