This classic work discusses representations in Egyptian painting, sculpture and reliefs, assessing how objects and figures are represented in two dimensions, introducing the idea of "conceptual" and "perceptual" art. Translated from the German by John Baines, who has revised the text and illustrations to take account of recent research.
