Full Description
In the present volume, first published in 1948 and long out of print, Andrews records and provides insightful analysis of the range of Buddhist wall paintings recovered by Stein at various sites, on the perimeter of the Taklamakan Desert (now in Xinjiang, China), which had served as waystations along the southern and northern branches of the Silk Road. With his artist's eye, Andrews skilfully points out the stylistic variations and develop ments, as well as local and exotic influences, on the ancient painters' pious renditions
