Add to Calendar 10-04-2012 05-08-2012 15 The Dawn of Egyptian Art During the Predynastic and Early Dynastic Periods (ca. 4000-2650 B.C.), people living in the Nile Valley began recording their beliefs through paintings, sculptures, and reliefs made for their shrines and tombs. These works of art capture the evolving world view of these early Egyptians. Images of people, animals, and landscapes, some of which give rise to hieroglyphs, include forms and iconography that remained in use throughout the art of Pharaonic Egypt. This exhibition brings together some 175 objects gathered from the Metropolitan Museum's important collection of early art and from the collections of twelve other museums in the U.S. and Europe to illustrate the origins and early development of ancient Egyptian art. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=107829 Metropolitan Museum of Art true DD/MM/YYYY
