Ipuy and Wife Receive Offerings from Their Children (substantially restored), c. 1279–1213 BC. Norman de Garis Davies. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (30.4.114).

“A fascinating course by a great expert in this field”

Course Participant

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York is a great world museum with a sensational Egyptian collection to match. The less famous Brooklyn Museum has enormously significant objects with rather more provenance, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston has extraordinary pieces, largely due to excavations carried out by Harvard University. This course aims to look at the objects themselves, their background, and the often-quirky stories behind their discoveries.
