We are pleased to announce that on Thursday 4th December, Rossi & Rossi will open its prestigious new gallery at 27 Dover Street, in the heart of London’s Mayfair.
In celebration of the opening, the gallery will feature a presentation of classical Himalayan works of art as well as contemporary Tibetan art – an affirmation of Rossi & Rossi’s commitment to exhibiting the very best examples of classical and contemporary Asian art. The fine works of art include a rare ca. 1200 Tibetan thangka of Buddha Mahavairocana. The thangka is a particularly exquisite example from the early period of Tibetan art production, and is evidence of the artistic exchanges between Tibet and Pala India during this period. To compliment this exquisite work of art, three contemporary Tibetan artists, Kesang Lamdark, Tenzing Rigdol and Tsherin Sherpa, have each been commissioned to produce a work inspired by the 13th century thangka. Executed using different techniques and mediums, the works demonstrate the variety and vibrancy found in contemporary Tibetan art, as well as the close connection between classical Tibetan art and contemporary practice. These contemporary examples will be shown alongside the thangka as well as other rare classical Himalayan works of art, demonstrating an exciting fusion of past and present artistic traditions and influences.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating the opening of the new gallery, and look forward to sharing our expertise and passion with our friends and clients as we move into the next year.
