Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Georges Perrot was a French archaeologist, professor in the faculty of letters in Paris, and a prolific author. His book, entitled A History of Art in Ancient Egypt is a two volume set covering the art of Ancient Egypt via archaeological means and discovery. As an archaeologist, Perrot explored Greece, Asia Minor, and other famous locales for archaeological digging; his findings while on dig sites inspired a considerable amount of his writing. This particular series was written in tandem with co-author Charles Chipiez, who worked and studied alongside Perrot and was considered an equal authority in the field of archaeology by contemporaries. Together, these two men performed architectural studies on the most ancient monuments through careful observations of sculptures and ruins. After Chipiez s death, Perrot continued to write and publish books on their work together. This book contains a veritable well-spring of information on ancient Egypt and its culture. Specifically, the book explores several ancient structures of Egypt - their style and their architecture, as well as the materials used to make these and other Egyptian structures. No aspect of a given structure is too large or too small to warrant detailed discussion in this text, as the book explores everything from arches and cornerstones, to doors and windows. The book also contains detailed information on Egyptian artwork found at archaeological digs including sculptures, paintings, glass and pottery, jewelry, and metal work. One of the most remarkable features of A History of Art in Ancient Egypt is its artful use of illustrations, with almost six hundred engravings in the text and fourteen steel and colored plates used to great effect. Whether you re a casual reader looking to learn about the Ancient Egyptians or a scholar focusing in archaeology and ancient architecture, this book has something exciting for everyone!

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from A History of Art in Ancient Egypt, Vol. 1 Stated in a few words, that-aim is to trace the course of the great plastic evolution which culminated in the age of Pericles and came to an end in that of Marcus Aurelius. That evolution forms a complete organic whole, with a birthday, a deathday, and an unbroken chain of cause and effect uniting the two. To objectors who may say that the art of India, of China, of Japan, should have been included in the scheme, it may be answered: this is the life, not of two, or three, but of one. M. Perrot has been careful, therefore, to discriminate between those characteristics of Egyptian art which may be referred either to the national beliefs and modes of thought, or to undeveloped material conditions, such as the want or supersti tious disuse of iron, and those which, being determined by the very nature of the problems which art has toisolve, formed a starting point for the arts of all later civilizations. By means of well-chosen examples he shows that the art of the Egyptians went through the same process of development as those of other and later nationalities, and that the real distinguishing characteristic of the sculptures and paintings of the Nile Valley was a continual tendency to simplification and generalization, arising partly from the habit of mind and hand created by the hieroglyphic writing, partly from the stubborn nature of the chief materials employed.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A History of Art in Ancient Egypt, Vol. 1 M. Perrot s name as a classical scholar and archaeologist, and M. Chipiez s as a penetrating critic of architecture, stand so high that any work from their pens is sure of a warm welcome from all students of the material remains of antiquity. These volumes are the first instalment of an undertaking which has for its aim the history and critical analysis of that great organic growth which, beginning with the Pharaohs and ending with the Roman Emperors, forms what is called Antique Art. The reception accorded to this instalment in its original form is sufficient proof that the eulogium prefixed to the German translation by an eminent living Egyptologist, Professor Georg Ebers, is well deserved; The first section, he says, of this work, is broad and comprehensive in conception, and delicate in execution; it treats Egyptian art in a fashion which has never previously been approached. In clothing it in a language which will, I hope, enable it to reach a still wider public, my one endeavour has been that it should lose as little as possible, either in substance or form. A certain amount of repetition is inevitable in a work of this kind when issued, as this was, in parts, and in one place I have ventured to omit matter which had already been given at some length, but with that exception I have followed M.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 521 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.The following computer-generated description may contain errors and does not represent the quality of the book. Perrot sname as a classical scholar and archaeologist, and M. Chiplez sas a penetrating critic of architecture, stand so high that any work from their pens is sure of a warm welcome from all students of the material remains of antiquity. These volumes are the first instalment of an undertaking which has for its aim the history and critical analysis of that great organic growth which, beginning with the Pharaohs and ending with the Roman Emperors, forms what is called Antique Art. The reception accorded to this instalment in its original form is sufficient proof that the eulogium prefixed to the German translation by an eminent living Egyptologist, Professor Georg Ebers, is well deserved; The first section, he says, of this work, is broad and comprehensive in conception, and delicate in execution; it treats Egyptian art in a fashion which has never previously been approached.

A certain amount of repetition is inevitable in a work of this kind when issued, as this was, in parts, and in one place I have ventured to omit matter which had already been given at some length, but with that exception I have followed M. Perrot swords as closely as the difference of idiom would allow. Another kind of repetition, with which, perhaps, some readers may be inclined to quarrel, forced itself upon the author as the Page 92, Vol. I.
