Les statues égyptiennes du Nouvel Empire

Statues royales et divines

Author(s): Christophe  Barbotin

€ 59.00 tax included

The best-known period in Egyptian history, the New Kingdom was a period of massive territorial expansion, administrative reorganization and, above all, an apotheosis of artistic creation. Great sovereigns like Thutmosis III, Amenhotep III, Akhenaton and Nefertiti, Tutankhamun and Ramses II can be found at the Louvre, as well as a number of divinities and a whole host of nobility and officials. The new museum catalogue presents, for the first time, one of the most eminent collections held in the West.
