Prof. Robert L. Brown of UCLA’s Department of Art History also serves as the South and Southeast Asia Curator at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).  In this latter capacity he has produced an on-line catalog of Southeast Asian Art at LACMA. The catalogue can be found at seasian.catalog.lacma.org/.

Prof. Justin McDaniel of the University of Pennsylvania says, “This is more than just a list of photos and titles of pieces of art. It includes several very detailed essays on the pieces, scholarly resources, etc. It is visually impressive, scholarly rigorous, and easy to navigate. I highly recommend it. It even includes my favorite piece — a sculpture of the Monkey’s Gift of Honey to the Buddha!”
