Reviews - What do customers think about Atlas of Egyptian Art?

Marvelous examples of ancient Eqyptian art  May 8, 2007
Originally hand-drawn and -colored illustrations give you an idea of what the temples and other buildings might've looked like at the height of the Pharaohs. Most of the Egyptian ornament I've seen in museums is so worn away you can't tell what the colors were originally. This book introduces you to the freshness and vitality of Egyptian art in a way museums can't. I became interested in Prisse d'Avennes by finding a 1930's reproduction of his work in very large format at a library; unfortunately, that book was falling apart and was wihdrawn from the stacks, but this printing is a very nice substitute.
reference book for everyone  Oct 25, 2002
The first part of this album on ancient Egyptian art presents the author and his passion for Egyptology. The second part consists of plates, representing drawings and outlines of pillars, vases, portraits, columns, niches, plans, and patterns among many others. This is a good reference to the art and architecture of ancient Egypt.
A fascinating and beautiful book  Nov 9, 2001
Atlas Of Egyptian Art was originally authored and illustrated by Emile Prisse d'Avennes, one of the first and most mysterious modern pioneers of Egyptology, who lived during the 1800's. The informative text withstands the test of time, and the amazing 150 color reproductions of Egyptian art and artifacts are truly a wonder to behold. The artistic skill of Emile Prisse d'Avennes has preserved images even though some of the original works were later lost. These were the first reliable, accurate drawings of ancient Egyptian art made available to the non-specialist general readers in the West. A fascinating and beautiful book, and a "must" for anyone with an interest in the clean, classical simplicity of Egyptian art!
Exceptional Book Only For The Hard To Impress!  Apr 26, 1999
This book is gorgeous, I am surprised I am the first to review it! If you are looking for inspiration in your Egyptian studies, graphics, and art this is the book to purchase. There are hundreds of color plates depicting Egyptian rock art, columns, stone carvings, and other tidbits drawn by Prisse. If you always wanted to know what color a Lotus was depicted as, or other such items, this will help immensely. The plates are so beautiful they can be framed as wall art. Inspirational and more!
