The rock-cut temples of Ajanta are situated near the source of the Waghora River in the State Hyderabad. This album, the first of the UNESCO series to be devoted to Asian art, contains thirty-two reproductions in colour, and does not profess to be a comprehensive survey of the vast domain of Ajanta paintings. it is intended only to give a broad outline of an art which holds a supreme position in Asian art history. The paintings of Ajanta have for Asia and the history of Asian art the same outstanding significance that Italian frescoes have for Europe and the history of European art. By land or by sea, the art tradition of Ajanta, bound up with the history of Buddhism in its successive phases, gradually spread out towards counties such as Indochina, Indonesia and Malaya, Korea and Japan. In China, it directly influenced and stimulated the art of the Tang dynasty, and the discovery of frescoes in Central Asia, in Khotan, at Turfan, at Tunhang, have only increased the interest inspired by the Ajanta paintings.
