Gandharan Sculpture: A catalogue of the collection in the Museum of Art and Archaeology University of Missouri--Columbia
The Gandharan sculpture in the Museum of Art and Archaeology of the University of Missouri--Columbia forms a collection that is almost as old as the Museum itself. The first piece was acquired in 1960, but the major growth of the collection occurred during the past decade. In its entirety, it reflects the generosity of several donors: Dr. Samuel Eilenberg, Mr. Alan Wolfe, Mr. Eric Neff, and the Leland and Mary Hazard Fund. Only three objects have been purchased. The group covers a period of six centuries, from the first century B.C. to the fifth century A.D. It comprises largely stone objects, but some stucco works are also included.
