Gupta Impact on the Art of Nepal The Golden Age: Gupta Art Empire, Province and Influence, edited by Karl Khandalavala,

Title:Gupta Impact on the Art of Nepal The Golden Age: Gupta Art Empire, Province and Influence, edited by Karl Khandalavala,

Abstract:The Lichchavis of Nepal who almost continuously ruled from c. AD 400 to 800 were contemporaries of the imperial Guptas of India and had a common artistic inspiration. All the principal religious currents which stirred India also registered their ripples in Nepal. Buddhism was the first established religion in Nepal. From c. 5th century AD onwards, Nepal, came in close contact with Indian art and yet retained its own personality. Nepal emerged by the late 5th century as an active art centre, drawing inspiration from the Gupta art of Mathura and Sarnath for Buddhist images and from early Kalachuri and Chalukyan art for Brahmanical themes.
