This exhibition is the first to provide a comprehensive examination of Egypt’s interactions with the classical world of Greece and Rome. It holds an exemplary collection of works of art from the Bronze Age to the late Roman Empire. There are nearly 200 rare objects, many of them have never been on view in the U.S. before. The exhibition is divided into four major historical phases: The Middle and Late Bronze Ages (ca. 2000-1100 BC), The Archaic and Classical Periods (ca. 700-332 BC), the Hellenistic period (332-30 BC) and Egypt under Roman Rule (30 BC-4th century AD). Visitors will see the many ways that Egypt interacted with Greece and Rome, and how each selectively borrowing from and influencing the other.
