I have come across an interesting article by Kalpana Sunder in 'SCROLL'-  "Museums of India: On the roof of the world, a Frenchwoman is on a quest to recover forgotten Buddhist treasures". It explains how 'exquisite art objects were gathering dust in the 15th century Matho monastery in Ladakh. Until Nelly Rieuf dedicated herself to restoring them.' 

Do take a look.
