This collection of the late Bernard V. Bothmer's writings represents some of the most significant scholarship on Egyptian art by a pioneer in the field. Introduced by his colleague T.G.H. James, former Keeper of the Egyptian Collection at the British Museum, and his former student, Rita Freed, Curator of Ancient Egyptian, Nubian, and Near Eastern Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, these articles span a broad range of topics on Egyptian art, from the origins of ancient Egypt to the Roman period. Bothmer's writings are complemented by more than 450 photographs, many from his Corpus of Late Egyptian Sculpture, the fruits of his research in museums, private collections, and art dealer's galleries around the world. Bothmer selected these photographs to illuminate his object-based methodology and to introduce scholars and the public to new fields of art historical inquiry.

This compendium makes many of Bothmer's articles and ideas accessible to a wide audience for the first time, highlighting his tremendous commitment to Egyptian sculpture of all periods. Art historians, museum curators, students, and all those interested in Egyptian art will find this book an invaluable source of information. Bothmer's influence, both as a teacher and a scholar, will live on in this collected volume.

Review:


"For future generations, people like myself, who will not have the privilege of studying or working with Bothmer, this book contains a wealth of information of the working method and the eye of a great Egyptian historian. It provides an example to emulate with regard to its style of writing and elegance in publication."--Elsbeth van der Wilt, Bibliotheca Orientalis


"As a chronicle of the life's work of a brilliant and singular mind that influenced the history of the history of the study of Egyptian art, and as a collection of some of the most visually stunning images of Egyptian art ever made, this compendium of selected writing by Bernard V. Bothmer makes a though-provoking addition to any library."--Lorelei H. Corcoran, Journal of the American Oriental Society


"Points out fresh perspectives on Egyptian realism in the era's 3000 years and particularly the Late Period, through [Bothmer's] multiple photographing of focus pieces.... ` Recommended."--HOICE
