About the book

Prof. Dieter Schlingloff is one of the leading experts onthe paintings of Ajanta. He has been engaged with the task of identifying the subject matter of the Ajanta Paintings in rich detail - a pre-requisite for further research. His steadfast research for last forty years constitutes a brilliant corpus of books and articles on the paintings of Ajanta. The present work comprises the quintessence of his research on the narrative wall paintings, their literary sources and the cultural background. In Prof. Schlingloff's own words , " The narrative paintings of the ancient period of Ajanta are of no less quality than the contemporaneous paintings of Roman Pompeu, and like those, they are the only testimonies of the marvellous art of narrative wall-paintings elsewhere lost. The glory of ancient Indian culture and the high standard of its morality as revealed in the Ajanta paintings should become known worldwide". The narrative wall paintings thus forms the subject matter of the present publication arranged in three volumes where the main focus remains on the relationship of the text and the image that will hopefully stimulate further discussion and investigation in similar fields.
