This week we will finish our look at the Old Kingdom exploring works from Dynasties 5 and 6. Then, we’ll explore the distinct and beautiful art of the Middle Kingdom -the time when new forms emerged and literature flourished. Behold the faces of sterner, more severe Kings and the beautiful models of factories and gardens placed in tombs.
Series of three lectures:
Apr. 17: Introduction to the Egyptian Museum & Art of the Old Kingdom
Apr. 24: Late Old Kingdom & Middle Kingdom
