Reading Egyptian Art

A Hieroglyphic Guide to Ancient Egyptian Painting and Sculpture

by Richard H. Wilkinson
Published by Thames and Hudson
Paperback - 224 pages


Brian V Hunt

. Wilkinson is a professor at the University of Arizona (or was) and I believe may still be directing that institution's work in the Valley of the Kings. As he points out in this volume, one of the things often missed in regards to Egyptian art is that it is intended to be "read". Even paintings and objects in the round are often constructed using hieroglyphs. The author gives a well written, organized overview of the rudiments of learning to see into Egyptian art more of what the artist intended the viewer to see. Very nicely illustrated with an excellent selection of examples.
