Published concurrently with the exhibition Twilight of the Pharaohs, Masterpieces of the Last Egyptian Dynasties, Musée Jacquemart-André, 23rd march au 23rd july 2012.

This catalogue reveals the wealth and diversity of Egyptian art after the end of the New Kingdom (1069-30 BCE).

It brings together over one hundred extraordinary artifacts from the most important international Ancient Egyptian collections including the Ägyptisches Museum Berlin, the British Museum, the Louvre and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Throughout this ten-century period marked by political upheavals and invasions, Egyptian art rooted in Ancient Egypt's dynastic tradition retained its full prestige and power.

Characterized by a mastery of technique and a preference for formal purity, the period's artistic production combines an elegance of proportions with refined forms and subtle detail. It particularly excels in the unequaled perfection of its statuary.
