Description

The Eygptian galleries at the Louvre are perhaps the best-known in the world, containing some of the most precious works of art ever found among the ruins of the ancient kingdoms that once rose along the Nile. In 1996, with the renovation of the Eygptian wing of the Louvre, Americans had the rare opportunity to view 30 of these treasures firsthand: works that have never travelled since their acquisition were gathered for an exhibition at the Cleveland Museum of Art in February 1996. This catalogue offers a complete record of the exhibition. It features all 30 masterpieces of Eygptian art, and includes images of rulers from all the major periods of Eygptian history, as seen in the statues, reliefs and stelae (largely done in stone) of the original collection.show more
