Egyptian Painting.


DKK 145,00

Until now Pharaonic art has been celebrated chiefly for its architectural monuments and scuptures, which have largely overshadowed the extant paintings. Located in hundreds, not to say thousands, of widely scattered tombs, these works had long been accessible to scholars and public only through sketches, watercolor copies and black-and-white reproductions. The book describes Egypt painting from the First to the Thirtieth Dynasty, spanning as it did three thousand years, whree the Pharaonic regime was one of the longest in Antiquity and througout the period artists of the Nile Valley produced indisputable masterpieces.
