The artists of Ancient Egypt reached a level of sophistication and technical mastery unsurpassed by other early peoples. They perfected a style which was less naturalistic than that later employed by the Greeks and Romans but which is particularly fascinating to the modern eye because of its combination of realistic and symbolic elements. This book aims to help the reader to such an understanding, concentrating particularly on points that may puzzle the modern western viewer. The principles of representation underlying Egyptian art, which differ fundamentally from western conventions rooted in perspective, are elucidated and the materials and methods used by the artists described. Of great importance was the technique of drawing a squared grid over the surface to be decorated, and the use of this grid system as an aid for obtaining correct proportions is explained, together with its influence on the composition of whole scenes. A chapter is devoted to the fascinating and highly individual work produced during the reign of the heretic king Akhenaten.

From its first beginnings over 7,000 years ago, the land that is now Egypt nurtured an extraordinary pioneering civilization - one of the oldest, most powerful, long-lasting and technically accomplished cultures the world has ever known. Over the millennia its achievements have never lost their power to amaze and delight - and justly so, for Egyptian architects and artists produces some of the greatest masterpieces of world art. This book presents a carefully chosen chronological selection of the finest works of art produced over a period ranging from c.4000 BC, when sophisticated works of art were already being made, to c.200 AD, when Egypt was a province of the Roman Empire. The works illustrated in Egypt: 4000 Years of Art are presented in strict chronological order, they also form a succinct history of the subject that will be a valuable resource for students and teachers.

This study of Ramesside Palestine challenges our understanding of the Egyptian Empire, suggesting that the Egyptianization of levantine material culture represents adoption of Egyptian culture by the local ruling class rather than a massive influx of pharaonic officials.

This volume arises from the International Colloquium on Colour and Painting in Ancient Egypt, organized by the Department of Egyptian Antiquities in the British Museum in 1996. Contributions range from the search for accurate methods of recording painted scenes on the monuments, through ancient painting techniques, to the symbolic meaning of colour to the ancient Egyptians, an understanding of which allows a better appreciation of their artistic creations. The application of the latest scientific techniques to ancient pigments is also well represented, a field of study that casts new light on the materials used to create the artistic masterpieces of Egypt.
