Art of Gupta Period (Editorial)

Title:Art of Gupta Period (Editorial)
Author:Khandalavala, Karl
Enumeration:Vol. 42 Issue no. 3; March 1991, p. ii-xii
Abstract:"The Art of the Gupta Age" is not exclusively a dynastic terminology. It seeks to indicate the growth of art-forms that came into being not only in the heartland of the Gupta empire, but also in provincial areas thereof, and even in the kingdoms beyond the rule of the imperial Guptas or their provincial governors. The art of the Gupta period has often been referred to as the "Classical Age of Indian Art". It is pointed out that Gupta art was not from its inception a creation unrelated to the schools of sculpture that had immediately preceded it. It resulted from a gradual development of sculptural forms which took place in a transitional period from the early 3rd century CE up to the rise of power of the Guptas in the early 4th century.
