Look inside “Ancient Egypt Transformed: The Middle Kingdom,” the most complete examination to date of the transformational Middle Kingdom (ca. 2030–1650 B.C.), which revived and reimagined earlier artistic conventions, cultural principles, religious beliefs, and political systems. This catalogue, written by an international team of Egyptologists and Middle Kingdom specialists, features nearly three hundred works, ranging from monumental sculpture to personal possessions from the world’s leading collections of Egyptian art.
Published to coincide with a major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
