Description

Edited by Adela Oppenheim, Dorothea Arnold, Dieter Arnold, and Kei Yamamoto

During Egypt’s great Middle Kingdom (ca. 2030–1650 B.C.), earlier artistic conventions, cultural principles, religious beliefs, and political systems were revived and reimagined. The Met’s sumptuous catalogue to the special exhibition presents a comprehensive picture of the art and culture of the Middle Kingdom, arguably the least known of Egypt’s three kingdoms and yet one that saw the creation of powerful, compelling works rendered with great subtlety and sensitivity. The book features nearly 300 works, including sculpture, relief decoration, stelae, jewelry, coffins, funerary objects, and personal possessions from the world’s leading collections of Egyptian art. Written by an international team of Egyptologists and Middle Kingdom specialists, the text provides recent scholarship and fresh insights, making it an authoritative resource.
