Was 'six limb theory' of Chinese painting borrowed from India?


A very great scholar on china, asserts that six limb theory of painting was actually borrowed from Indian book Kamasutra which is written in 150 ad some three centuries earlier than chinese relevant text.
Is it true ?

Sorry, it seems that I got my title a bit wrong and can not edit it now.

My original question remains though if chinese borrowed six limb called " sadanga" in sanskrit from india.

You can ask a moderator to change the title. Use the ! button (that says Report Post) on the left of your initial post and type in your comment about what you want, and they'll see it.

Vikas, I've edited the title depending on how I understood the OP. Let me know if it's what you had in mind.

The only mention I came across of the problem is Victor H. Mair's essay in this book:

[ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Chinese-Aesthetics-Ordering-Literature-Dynasties/dp/0824827910/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1363611288&sr=8-1"]Chinese Aesthetics: The Ordering of Literature, the Arts, and the Universe in the Six Dynasties: Amazon.co.uk: Zong-qi Cai: Books@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51RYNJ0XFTL.@@AMEPARAM@@51RYNJ0XFTL[/ame]

It doesn't appear in any of the art history books I myself own, so I can't comment much on it. I was under the impression they were not related however.
