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.
