The Bangkok national museum houses a high-profile antiques gallery ranging from early Gandharan, Dvaravati and Srivijaya to Sukhothai and later style images. Then there is a private museum on Pattanakarn road in Bangkok that has a beautiful collection of antique Buddhas. It showcases the stylistic development from pre-Sukhothai to high classical Sukhothai, later U-Thai and Ayutthaya styles up to the Ratanakosin period. In addition, you find Burmese and Lao style sculpture. Check out "Buddhist Art and Architecture" by Robert E. Fisher and "The Art of Southeast Asia" by Philip Rawson. These are concise introductory (and affordable) books.
