At the Edge of the Sky, Asian Art in the Collection of the San Antonio Museum of Art. Seventy-three works of art from the impressive collection of the Lenora and Walter F. Brown Asian Art Wing in the San Antonio Museum of Art are presented in this text, many for the first time, providing an invaluable resource for scholars and a beautiful sampling of the collection for aficionados and casual readers. The entries that accompany each of the illustrations provide aesthetic commentary, curatorial detail, and information on the era or medium to enrich the visual experience. Objects are grouped by geographical and political designations into three sections: China; Japan and Korea; and Southeast Asia, the Himalayas, and the Tibetan Plateau. Essays precede each selection of works, capturing a sense of the history and cultural evolution of these rich and diverse lands and peoples.
