Egyptian imagery is presented in a collection of artwork, including ceramics by Wedgwood to jewelry by Cartier, murals by Piranesi, architectural designs by Zix, paintings by Tiepolo, and furniture by Hope. The catalogue contains 392 objects, lent from museums, private lenders such as the House of Cartier, and collections from Fontainebleu, Versailles, Malmaison and Buckingham Palace. Essays by art historians from Paris, Vienna and Ottawa give detailed histories of each object and artist.
