This book explores the role of the artists who created the magnificent tomb paintings of Egypt's Old Kingdom. Challenging the idea that the artists of ancient Egypt were anonymous craftsmen who labored in obscurity to create masterpieces of funerary art, the authors of this volume have produced a thorough study, well illustrated with detailed photographs and line drawings, that gives definition to these skilled and valued members of society. This monograph provides an accessible reference on Egyptian art as it appears in wall scenes, and addresses the intriguing question of the artists' identity and individual style.
