Walter Arader Himalayan Artat 1016 Madison Avenue has singled out a fine Qianlong period painting of Rolpai Dorje  (1717-1786) for his exhibition, "Fine Himalayan Art." By far the most notable aesthetic aspect of this unforgettable portrait is that, whereas the subsidiary figures, background, and body of Rolpai Dorje are all executed in the Yonghe style, the portrait face of Rolpai Dorje is executed in an Italian Baroque style.
