    Review quote
    "The private rock tombs of ancient Thebes comprise an important corpus for the study of ancient Egyptian life as well as of the genius of New Kindgdom painting. This work presents a selection of these tombs with interwoven commentaries on history, theology, and esthetic theory. . . It is a competent and enthusiastic introduction not only to the tombs but also to the culture that produced them. Cornell University Press is to be congratulated on including this volume in their ongoing project of bringing German and French Egyptological works to an English speaking public." Lana Troy, Journal of the American Oriental Society"
