Ancient Egyptian Art Notes
Introducing how we analyze art: The Three “’s
1. Subject matter/iconography
2. Style/Formal Analysis
3. Significance/why?
Ex: This sculpture to the left
Subject Matter: Egyptian Pharaoh who would rule for 25 years
Style: symmetrical, shadowed
Significance: shows his power, used as emergency vessels if the mummy tomb was
destroed ad the this statue ould sere as a akup hoe for their ka or soul
*If everyone drew a picture of Professor Tom, the subject matter would remain the
same but the style might different from individual to individual
Egypt will serve as our baseline for the rest of the art we look at

Egyptian Art cast over a very long period of time (about 3,000 years) and hardly even changed
Pre-Dynastic: before 3200 BC - ruled by tribes
Early-Dynastic: up to 2600 BC - all of the area of Egypt was ruled under one by King Narmer
Old Kingdom: up to 2150 BC - flourishing really robust commerce and art
Middle Period: up to 1540 BC - invasions, turmoil, a period of difficulty
New Kingdom: up to 1075 BC flourishing again
Late Period: up to 330 BC - comes to an end when toloies Greek successors of Alexander the Great) took
over and Egypt became part of the Hellenist orld aka Egpt as Greekified
Geographical concept
Egyptians lived in the Nile Area
The whole civilization lives along the river bc the river is a source of
food and water
Extremely fertile mud that is deposited when the river floods (like
yearly)
The Valley of the Fertile Crescent and the Nile Valley were the
beginnings of huge successful civilizations thanks to the rivers
This mud made it possible to produce lots of food, attracted other
people, those people put to work to make building out of stone
and such
They loved the river as if it was given by the gods to them
There’s a altitude hage that reated  separate Egpts that still
share the same culture (like the Greek and Roman gods and how
they are the same but different)
