Emile Prisse d'Avennes (1804-1879) fut à la fois archéologue, égyptologue et explorateur. Il passa de nombreuses années en Egypte où il côtoya, entre autres, Champollion et Maspero. De retour à Paris, ses écrits et aquarelles inspirèrent nombre d'écrivains romantiques, à l'instar de Théophile Gautier ou Maxime Du Camp. Ce volume donne de nombreux éclaircissements sur les planches dessinées par l'auteur, que nous publions en grand format sous le titre L'Art arabe, et invite le lecteur à une promenade "amoureuse" et pittoresque à travers le Caire du XIXe siècle

For forty years the French Orientalist, author, and artist Émile Prisse d'Avennes (1807-1879) explored Egypt disguised as an Arab, using the name Idris Effendi. In 1844 Prisse d'Avennes travelled from Alexandria to France, where, three years later, he published Les Monuments egyptiens. The volume contains 51 plates - mainly chromolithographs, but also some color plates - based on drawings made during his years in Egypt. After again visiting North Africa, he returned to Paris in 1860 with the fruits of his numerous journeys - hundreds of folio drawings, photographs, sketches, plans, and 400 metres of bas-reliefs. Fascinated by the symmetry, complexity and opulence of Egyptian and Arabic art, he drew from his vast collection to create compilations of art and architecture, based on his study of original documents and historical, social, and religious context. His beautiful album of Egyptian art was published in its entirety in Paris in 1878 as L'Histoire de l'art egyptien containing 159 stunning plates. For this publication, these splendid illustrations of architecture, sculpture, paintings, and industrial arts, brilliantly conveying the history and variety of ancient Egypt's art and culture, are reproduced in facsimile and for the first time published together"--Publisher's description
