Introduction by Arielle P. Kozloff
An exhaustive examination of a great collection of Egyptian art, in which the museum's entire holdings, from 5,000 BC through the Greco-Roman period are discussed and illustrated. Important texts are also translated. Among the highlights are the 21st-dynasty coffins of Bakenmut and Nesychonsu, two portrait sculptures of Amenhotep III, and the Mentuemhat relief series from the 26th dynasty. An extensive appendix of technical data and an index is included.
