Rediscovering Egypt:

The Collection of the Dahesh Museum of Art

Napoleon’s invasion of Egypt in 1798, accompanied by scholars, artists and archaeologists, initiated the 19th century’s rediscovery of this extraordinary country. Writers, curious travelers and, most crucially, artists from many European countries followed and explored all aspects of its ancient and contemporary culture. Rediscovering Egypt combines original engravings from the Description de l’Egypte – considered the seminal work of modern Egyptology – with orientalist works from the collection of the Dahesh Museum of Art of New York City.

This exhibition is organized by The Dahesh Museum of Art
