Diana Lange. ‘A Unique View from Within’: The Representation of Tibetan Architecture in the British Library’s Wise Collection

In the early 1990s, the historian Michael Aris (1946–99) noted that the British Library’s Wise Collection ‘may represent the most ambitious pictorial survey of Tibetan topography and culture ever attempted by a local artist’ (Aris, 1992). The artist’s ambition is reflected in a set of drawings that are probably the most comprehensive set of large-scale visual representations of Tibet and the Western Himalayan kingdoms of Ladakh and Zangskar in the mid-19th century.
