About this title

Synopsis:

This magnificent catalogue documents more than 500 objects in all media, a collection that is for its size, is one of the finest anywhere.

From Library Journal:

Although much smaller than the famous collections of Egyptian art and antiquities in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, or the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Cleveland Museum of Art's holdings are well known for their high aesthetic quality. Objects loaned by Cleveland have contributed significantly to most major Egyptian art exhibitions during the past several decades. First envisioned in 1917, this catalog was finally begun in 1993, when Berman, now the museum's first full-time curator of Egyptian and Ancient Near Eastern Art, was engaged as a contract consultant for the project. Berman presents the objects in chronological sections corresponding to the major periods of Egyptian history, with additional divisions for "Amulets," "Miscellaneous Objects," and "Forgeries and Questionable Pieces." Entries consist of a descriptive essay, materials and construction, condition, provenance, and a bibliography. Translations are provided for nearly all inscriptions. Art historians and archaeologists will welcome this publication, as will all library patrons with a keen interest in ancient Egypt. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.AEdward K.
