Ancient Egypt & the Napoleonic Era: Masterworks from the Dahesh Museum of Art

To celebrate the centennial of archaeologist Howard Carter’s discovery of the tomb of King Tutankhamen, the VBMA presents Ancient Egypt & the Napoleonic Era: Masterworks from the Dahesh Museum of Art. <br /> Western encounters with the Orient date back many centuries, but the Industrial Revolution developed dynamic new levels of engagement. New and better forms of transportation created a flood of travelers–writers, scholars and, most crucially, artists–all heading to the Orient. The result was an extraordinary range of artworks with a variety of themes and styles. The show explores artistic visions of the cultures and peoples from the time Napoleon entered Egypt, taking with him dozens of draftsmen and engineers to create renderings of this country’s rich cultural phenomena. <br /> Museum hours: Mon-Sat: 10 am – 4:30 pm; Sundays 1 – 4pm.<br /> <br /> <br /> Email: info@vbmuseum.org<br /> Phone: 772 231 0707<br /> <br /> More Info: vbmuseum.org<br /> <br /> Location:<br /> <br /> Vero Beach Museum of Art<br /> 3001 Riverside Park Drive<br /> Vero Beach FL 32963 United States
