This course is a survey of ancient Egyptian art, from the late 4th millennium BCE to the Greco-Roman period, against the background of social, intellectual, and historical developments. The course will give an overview by period, but its main focus is on topics, genres, and problems of interpretation. The approach will range from discussion of the position of art in Egyptian society to detailed study of some individual artifacts and types. Direct experience of the artifacts is available through the Egyptian collections in the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, which will be used for part of the course.

Art in the sense of aesthetically organized spaces, artifacts (including those bearing hieroglyphic writing), and performances is fundamental to what is known about ancient Egypt. Architecture is both an essential artistic form and the context in which works of art belonging to other genres were sited or enacted. Within the overall context of architecture, the course studies relief, painting, and sculpture in the round, while extending to minor and ephemeral arts, and including such special genres as the stela and the sarcophagus. Theoretical issues that arise from the material relate to the role of art in civilization, artistic environments, art and agency, representational forms, text and image, and iconography.
