We are seeking assistance with preparations for a "catalogue raisonné" and an exhibition aiming to reassemble the destroyed monuments of the famous Densathil monastery.

We would very much appreciate photographs or informations about any pieces even small, burnt or dmages in public or private collections coming or reputed coming from this very important center of tibetan art.

After reception of your pictures, we will send you a certificate of th einclusion in our "cataloue raisonné", and giving th einformationswhich wecan have on your object, as date of execution, or monument from wich it is most probably coming from.

The Densatil page on AAOARTS is under reconstruction.

The 25 years old text first published in 1993 has been removed as through new sources and documents we have since made many discoveries that will permit us to make some corrections and additions.

A new text with more informations regarding chronolgy and stylistic evolution of the densatil Art Style will be added here very soon now.

Many pieces are often appearing on the market under the abusive attribution of provenance from the famous Densathil monastery. Most of them are not showing neither stylistic nor technical, or iconographical or chronological specific elements.

Do not hesitate to send us your pictures. By the way, you will help us to enlarge our database, and we will be able to give you our opinion based upon over 15 years of research on this wonderful and important field for the art and history of Tibet.
