Jewels of the Nile: Ancient Egyptian Treasures from the Worcester Art Museum (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 1 week.


An extraordinary book about one of he most comprehensive groupings of ancient Egyptian jewellery. Jewels of the Nile celebrates the very first time that the Worcester Art Museum's internationally important collection of Egyptian jewellery which has undergone conservation and cleaning has been shown together. This strikingly illustrated book introduces the reader to the collection of an early 20th century Boston couple with a passion for ancient Egypt. The collectors, Laura and Kingsmill Marrs, were guided in their acquisitions by Howard Carter, the archaeologist who would later achieve world-wide recognition for his discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun (1922). Under his guidance, the Marrs's purchased an outstanding selection of scarabs, amulets, jewellery and cosmetic-related articles, including rare blue-toned stone vessels. They also acquired a group of Carter's watercolour renditions of important Egyptian sites and royal figures. These artifacts, as well as objects from Worcester's stellar collection of Egyptian antiquities, are included in the publication. AUTHORS: Peter Lacovara is director of the Ancient Egyptian Archaeology and Heritage Fund and former curator at the MFA Boston and Michael C. Carlos Museum. Yvonne Markowitz is the Rita J. Kaplan and Susan B. Kaplan Curator Emerita of Jewellery at the MFA Boston; Paula Artal-Isbrand is the objects conservator who executed the cleaning and conservation treatment. 304 colour illustrations
