Tenzing Asian Art specializes in early Himalayan art: rare objects of Buddhist art from Tibet, Kashmir, and Pala India and Nepali art that survived in Tibet, each piece selected for its beauty and historical significance.
Iwona Tenzing established Tenzing Asian Art sixteen years ago and later partnered with her mentor, Chino Roncoroni, a leading dealer in Himalayan art and Central Asian textiles and courtly objects. Known internationally for his expertise and discerning eye, Chino has built compelling private collections in Europe and America and facilitated acquisitions by several world-class museums.
Tenzing Asian Art operates internationally, participating in TEFAF Maastricht and holding private viewings in Hong Kong and Europe.
