The Rubin Museum of Art holds one of the world’s most important collections of Himalayan art. The museum’s collection of more than 2,000 works of art includes Himalayan paintings, sculpture, textiles, ritual objects, and prints spanning a period from the 2nd century to the 20th century. The works of art in the collection are drawn from the cultures that touch upon the 1,800 mile arc of mountains that extends from Afghanistan in the northwest to Myanmar (Burma) in the southeast and includes Tibet Autonomous Region, Nepal, Mongolia, and Bhutan. The larger Himalayan cultural sphere, determined by significant cultural exchange over millennia, includes Iran, India, China, Central Asia, and Southeast Asia.
