Traditional Thai art primarily consists of Buddhist art and, to a lesser extent, Hindu-influenced Thai folklore. While Thai sculptures most often depict images of the Buddha and other characters from Buddhist and Hindu mythology, Thai paintings traditionally comprised book illustrations and painted ornamentation of temples and palaces.   Jirapat Tatsanasomboon is the only Thai artist to be featured in the new Thames & Hudson book Painters of Tomorrow. Kritsana Chaikitwattana The thoughtful young artist seeks to create a space in which juxtapostions can be united, regarless of the potential conflict in which they find themselves, to eventually create a coherent bond.   The idea for the Thai Art Archives grew out of a conversation Gregory Galligan had with two art professors from Bangkok’s Silpakorn University back in   Jana Igunma, Henry Ginsburg Curator for Thai, Lao and Cambodian, looks at the role of animals in Thai manuscript art. Illustrations of real and mythical animals play an important role in Thai manuscript art, especially in Buddhist folding books and in animal treatises, but also in manuscripts related to astrology, divination and fortune telling.

This richly illustrated, very readable book presents a survey of early Thai art from prehistory to the thirteenth century within the context of recent art historical and related research. The myriad pieces of the complex cross-cultural jigsaw are fitted together to create a coherent picture of the evolution of Thai art. The Arts of Thailand display features the museum's finest Thai Buddhist sculptures in bronze and stone spanning the period from the 7th to the 19th centuries together with works of decorative art in a wide variety of media associated both with the Thai court and with monasteries.
