AUTHOR

Curl, James Stevens, Curl, James Stevens

SUMMARY

In this beautifully illustrated and closely argued book, a completely updated and much expanded third edition of his magisterial survey, Professor Curl describes in lively and stimulating prose the numerous revivals of the Egyptian style from Antiquity to the present day. Drawing on a wealth of sources, his pioneering and definitive work analyzes the remarkable and persistent influence of Ancient Egyptian culture on the West.The author deftly develops his argument that the civilization of Ancient Egypt is central, rather than peripheral, to the development of much of Western architecture, art, design, and religion. He charts the persistence of Egyptian motifs in design from Graeco-Roman Antiquity, through the Medieval, Baroque, and Neo-Classical periods, and goes on to trace the rise of Egyptology in the nineteenth and twentieth-century manifestations of Egyptianisms prompted by the discovery of Tutankhamun'¬"s tomb, and various aspects of Egyptianising tendencies in the Art Deco style and afterwards.For students of art, architectural and ancient history, and those interested in western European culture generally, this book will be an inspiring and invaluable addition to the available literature.Curl, James Stevens is the author of 'Egyptian Revival Ancient Egypt as the Inspiration for Design Motifis in the West', published 2006 under ISBN 9780415361187 and ISBN 0415361184.
