History of these Paintings

The original paintings are owned by the collection of the Ethnographic Museum of the City of Antwerp - 'Museum aan de Stroom'[Belgium].

They were acquired in 1977 by the Belgian Father R. Verbois. Verbois had bought them, along with a number of other paintings, from a Tibetan monk in 1923 in the former imperial monastery of Wang-zhi-mia [former Jehol Province]

The Rubin Museum of Art - New York has shown the original paintings until April, 13, 2015.
