In the Fullness of Time: Masterpieces of Egyptian Art from American Collections
James F. RomanoISBN: 1930957521;
Book DescriptionIn the Fullness of Time surveys Egyptian art and culture from 4500 BC to the end of the Roman period. Objects from the most distinguished collections in the United States are illustrated, including superb examples of painting, relief, sculpture, and the personal arts (ceramics, furniture, jewelry, clothing, metalwork, and wood). Each of the works, small in scale but of extremely high quality, poses a question or problem in Egyptian art history; together they present a significant introduction to Egyptian art. A short introduction by John Olbrantz discusses the history of American Egyptology. An extensive essay by James Romano explores the social, philosophical, and religious basis of ancient Egyptian art.
