Weedon Lecture Series in the Arts of Asia
Visiting Art Expert To Lecture On The Buddha Image In Early India At The University Of Virginia April 15

March 30, 2004 -- Sonya Quintanilla, an expert in Indian and Himalayan art, will discuss “Monks, Nuns and Formulations of the Buddha Image in Early India” on Thursday, April 15, at 5:30 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 153. Her lecture is the final installment in the University of Virginia Art Museum’s Ellen Bayard Weedon Lecture Series in the Arts of Asia for 2004.

Quintanilla has published works on aspects of early Indian sculpture, including the art of a little-known sect of Jainism and proto-mandalic stone tablets that functioned as objects of worship. She is a lecturer in the department of art history at the University of California at Irvine, and her research interests include issues related to Buddhist monasticism and art. Quintanilla received her doctoral degree in art history from Harvard University in 1999. Her dissertation is being revised and expanded for publication as a book, “History of Early Stone Sculpture at Mathura.”

The University of Virginia Art Museum’s Weedon lectures are made possible with support from the Ellen Bayard Weedon Foundation.

Parking for the lecture will be available at the museum and in the Culbreth Road parking lots.
