The collection of John and Berthe Ford represents one of the most important private holdings of Indian and Himalayan art in the world. Certain objects have been widely exhibited; others have never been publicly shown. This catalogue brings together works that demonstrate the depth and range of the collection, providing an extraordinary overview of 2,000 years of history and illustrating enduring themes in the art of Southeast Asia with outstanding works of art.
This publication accompanied an exhibition at the Walters Art Museum, October 20, 2001-January 13, 2002.
