Description
About the Book

Art of Mathura is very important in the art history of India. The geographical loeation of the city of Mathura in the context of ancient India, on the highway leading from Eastern India to the west and from Southern India and Gujerat to Gandhara and further in the north-west, contributed to the eclectic nature of its culture, It shows gradual development of art forms from 4th cent. B.C. till its maturity in the Gupta period (4th-Sth Cent. A. D.). It Shows old folk-cults in the worship of Yakshas and Nagas with the worship of Brahmanical, Jaina and Buddhist divinities and the development of Buddha image as against a symbol representing human form. There is free use of Hellenistic motifs, e. g. honey-suckle, acanthus, Erotes, Tritons, Eagle of Zeus, etc.

The author discusses some of the finest examples of Mathura art and its special features and elements.
