This collection of the late Bernard V. Bothmer's writings represents some of the most significant scholarship on Egyptian art by a pioneer in the field. Introduced by his colleague T.G.H. James, former Keeper of the Egyptian Collection at the British Museum, and his former student, Rita Freed, Curator of Ancient Egyptian, Nubian, and Near Eastern Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, these articles span a broad range of topics on Egyptian art, from the origins of ancient Egypt to the Roman period. Bothmer's writings are complemented by more than 450 photographs, many from his Corpus of Late Egyptian Sculpture, the fruits of his research in museums, private collections, and art dealer's galleries around the world. Bothmer selected these photographs to illuminate his object-based methodology and to introduce scholars and the public to new fields of art historical inquiry.
This compendium makes many of Bothmer's articles and ideas accessible to a wide audience for the first time, highlighting his tremendous commitment to Egyptian sculpture of all periods. Art historians, museum curators, students, and all those interested in Egyptian art will find this book an invaluable source of information. Bothmer's influence, both as a teacher and a scholar, will live on in this collected volume.
