Description

Discover the extraordinary masterpieces of Ancient Egypt. This catalog brings together sarcophagi, statues, murals, and other timeless treasures made by anonymous masters between the Old Kingdom and the Late Period. Find out why these centuries-old, World Heritage jewels are displayed from New York to Cairo with the same honors as works by artists like Michelangelo and Leonardo.

Authors: Rainer Hagen and Rose-Marie Hagen.

Hardcover edition with illustrated dust jacket, format 21.8 x 26.5 cm. 96 pages illustrated in full color. Edition with texts in Spanish.

We do not know the names of the artists of ancient Egypt, but the value of the works of these anonymous masters is comparable to that of the most outstanding pieces of later times, such as the sculptures of Michelangelo or the paintings of Leonardo. This book presents some of the most important pieces from the Ancient Empire, in the third millennium BC, to the Late Period.

The volume collects sculptures, reliefs, sarcophagi, murals, masks and ornaments. Most of the pieces are kept in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, although others occupy pre-eminent places, such as world heritage pieces, in museums such as the Louvre in Paris, the British Museum in London, the Egyptian Museum in Berlin or the Metropolitan of NY.

Some of the works included are:

The seated statue of King Zóser
