In the Fullness of Time: Masterpieces of Egyptian Art from American Collections
August 31, 2002 – January 4, 2003
In the Fullness of Time: Masterpieces of Egyptian Art from American Collections presents a survey of Egyptian art and culture from 4,500 BC to the end of the Roman period and features 48 objects on loan from American collections. One of the exhibition's principle themes - Egyptian art was a dynamic phenomenon that functioned at a deliberate pace - will be illustrated throughout the exhibition. Other themes to be explored in the exhibition include the "Africaness" of Egyptian art, the question of portraiture, the depiction of gender in ancient Egyptian art, and the relationship between writing and the visual arts.
