Art of South India During the Satavahana Period, ca. 100 BC to 300 AD

Research at the library and photographic archives of the Archeological Survey of India in New Dehli to complete the manuscript of a projected publication of "The Art of the Satavahana Period" covering the important developments in Buddhist architecture and sculpture in South India (ca. 100 BC to 300 AD). Preliminary research conducted during 1967-68 as a Faculty Research Fellow of the American Institute of Indian Studies. Since much of the knowledge of ancient India is derived from artistic monuments, the art historian can potentially contribute much valuable information toward the reconstruction of the heritage of India's past. In addition to being a major formative period of Indian art, the Satavahana period saw the expansion of Buddhism into a truly international religion and the spread of writing and other benefits of Indian civilization to the backward societies of Southeast Asia.
