Temples and tombs : treasures of Egyptian art from the British Museum by Edna R Russmann ( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The British Museum possesses one of the world's foremost collections of Egyptian antiquities. Temples and Tombs provides readers with an invaluable opportunity to view renowned masterpieces and little-known treasures from the museum's collection. The eighty-five objects featured within these pages span a full range of pharaonic history - from shortly before the Third Dynasty, about 2686 B.C., to the Roman occupation of the fourth century A.D. - and cover each of the four periods into which ancient Egyptian history is divided: Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom, New Kingdom, and the Late Period." "Presented here are a wide variety of objects - sculpture, relief, papyri, ostraca, jewelry, cosmetic objects, and funerary items - in a variety of media, including stone, wood, terra, cotta, gold, glass, and papyrus, each categorized according to its use in ancient culture. From objects made for temples of the gods and funerary monuments, to the objects used daily by artists and nobles and ritual objects concerning death and the afterlife, the treasures collected here are a testament to the rich, vibrant, and captivating culture of the ancient Egyptians."--Book jacket
Roman art from the Louvre by Cécile Giroire ( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Spanning the first century B.C. through the early fourth century A.D., the Louvre's world-class Roman art collection includes an enormous array of objects that reflect the rich history and culture of a magnificent civilization. Published to accompany a traveling exhibition organized by the American Federation of Arts and the Musee du Louvre, this book features an extraordinary selection of these works - from the most famous to some with new significance resulting from new information. Themes such as religion, urbanisim, war, imperial expansion, funerary practices, intellectual life, and family are vividly represented in mosaics, frescoes, bronze and terracotta statuettes, monumental sculptures, sarcophagi, reliefs, and glass and metal vessels." "Roman Art from the Louvre also documents the major restoration, process undertaken by the Louvre to revive the vibrancy of the works included in the exhibition. Through careful procedures of cleaning and repair, the reincarnation of the Louvre's collection transforms the contemporary view of early Roman public and private life, conveying a novel perspective and understanding of these ancient masterpieces."--BOOK JACKET
