By Regine Schulz and Matthias Seidel
Contributions by Betsy Brian and Christianne Henry
This beautifully illustrated book surveys more than seventy works, ranging from the early Dynastic period to the Greco-Roman period, from the Egyptian collection of the Walters Art Museum. An introduction essay traces the development of the collection—one of the most important in the United States—and section introductions provide an overview of political, religious, and cultural developments during each of the major periods of Egyptian history. Individual object descriptions describe how these works were made and used.
