Summary
Taking in Egypt's greatest historical sites, Alastair Sooke tells the story of Ancient Egyptian art through 30 extraordinary masterpieces. Tracing the origins of Egypt's unique visual style, he treks across the Sahara and travels the Nile to find the rarely-seen art of its earliest peoples. Exploring how this civilization's art reflected its religion, he looks anew at the Great Pyramid, and the statuary and painting of the Old Kingdom.
