Price Auditorium
Free with museum admission

This presentation introduces the main characteristics for the earliest paintings of the Drigung School, identifies a number of themes typical for this school, and relates these to monuments in Ladakh, northwestern India. Finally, it shows how the main iconographic groups of these Drigung paintings are conceptually related to each other, thus hinting towards a function of these paintings.
