Notes on the Geography of Peninsular India: Ajanta: Photo 88

world pictures Peninsular India: Ajanta

Cave 17, you recall, has a shade to protect its paintings, probably the best surviving at Ajanta. The saga of early copyists at Ajanta is unbelievable, with years devoted to the task, only to have everything destroyed by fire. That's what happened to the work of Robert Gill, burned in the Crystal Palace in 1866. That's what happened to much of the work of John Griffiths, many of whose paintings were lost in a fire at the Victoria and Albert Museum. And that's what happened to the tracings made by Arai Kampo, which were destroyed in the fire following the 1923 Tokyo earthquake.
