Egypt : 4000 years of art by Jaromír Málek( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "From its first beginnings over 7,000 years ago, the land that is now Egypt nurtured an extraordinary pioneering civilization-one of the oldest, most powerful, long-lasting and technically accomplished cultures the world has ever known. Over the millennia its achievements have never lost their power to amaze and delight-and justly so, for Egyptian architects and artists produces some of the greatest masterpieces of world art. This book presents a carefully chosen chronological selection of the finest works of art produced over a period ranging from c.4000 BC, when sophisticated works of art were already being made, to c.200 AD, when Egypt was a province of the Roman Empire." The works illustrated in Egypt: 4000 Years of Art are presented in strict chronological order, they also form a succinct history of the subject that will be a valuable resource for students and teachers
Egyptian art by Jaromír Málek( Book )

"In this introduction, Jaromir Malek, an internationally respected authority, deftly traces Egyptian art from its prehistoric origins through 3000 years of astonishing achievements in the era of the pharaohs to the conquest of Egypt by the Romans. He outlines artistic trends in each period, linking them to economic, political and spiritual developments, and discusses the full range of artistic output: monumental architecture, sculpture, wall-reliefs and paintings, furniture, jewellery, papyri and pottery. He concludes with a fascinating account of Egypt's influence on modern art. Illustrations document the immense variety and superb quality of the art and architecture of one of the world's great civilizations."--Jacket

The cat in ancient Egypt by Jaromír Málek( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Czech and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most modern domestic cats are descendants of the cats of ancient Egypt. These beautiful and engaging creatures represent, therefore, a living link between Egyptian civilization and the completely different world of today. Dr Malek's absorbing survey shows that wild cats were probably domesticated at least as early as 2000 BC but started to be regularly included in tomb paintings of family life only some 500 years later, during the New Kingdom. Dr Malek draws evidence from a vast range of artistic and written sources to show how the cat became one of the most widely-esteemed animals, revered as a manifestation of the goddess Bastet. Large numbers of mummified cats were buried in the Late Period, and bronze statuettes of cats were dedicated to temples during religious festivals. Illustrating the text with representations of cats in tomb paintings, sculpture, papyri, jewellery, ostraka, mummies and coffins, the author conveys the affection and respect in which cats were held in ancient Egypt. This lively and readable book will surely prove to be the definitive account of the Egyptian cat: aristocrat of domestic animals
