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

HISTORY OF ART / ART & DESIGN STYLES. A defining record of Islamic art and architecture. Emile Prisse d'Avennes (1807-1879), a French Orientalist, author, and artist, was one of the greatest pre-20th-century Egyptologists. With a keen eye for the symmetry, opulence, and complexity of local visual cultures, d'Avennes recorded the art and architecture which he encountered on his travels. His work would later become one of the most outstanding surveys on Islamic art and architecture, Arab Art (L'Art arabe d'apres les monuments du Kaire), published between 1869 and 1877 in Paris. This TASCHEN edition revives d'Avennes's magisterial chromolithograph survey in all its attention to detail, as well as to historical, social, and religious contexts. It is a precious record not only of Islamic heritage but also of the history of thought and imagination between Europe and the Middle East
