Scholars believe that the Sarnath School of Art of the late Gupta era has motivated the designs of the art works found here. Numerable sculptures and other works of art have been unearthed from over 40 archaeological sites in Assam. Interesting creations of art belonging to the Middle Ages, which include motifs and sculptures of temples and palaces, have been excavated. Patterns adorning the walls of buildings like Joydoul, Rang Ghar and others exhibit excellent artwork.
Another renowned old tradition of the state of Assam is painting. Historical records have declared that King Kamarupa and King Bhaskaravarma had offered beautiful paintings as gifts to Harshavardhana. These paintings were performed on Assamese silk. Some outstanding paintings have been discovered from ancient manuscripts like the Gita Govinda and 'Hastividyarnava' or A Treatise on Elephants' and 'Chitra Bhagawata'. Assamese literature belonging to the medieval era has also spoken about 'patuas' and 'chitrakars'.
