The Art of Ancient Egypt: Architecture, Sculpture, Painting, Applied Art
Brasch N5350 AS39
Vienna: Phaidon Press
After a brief trip to New Zealand, which included a disastrous attempt at entering the family business, Brasch headed back to England and Europe. Colin Roberts, a friend, arranged for him to become a field assistant and join the seasonal archaeological digs at Tell el-Amarna. Brasch spent three seasons in Egypt, from 1933 to 1935. Before going out to Egypt, Brasch studied the language at the School of Oriental Studies in London, and read much on Egyptian history. He was at Tell el-Amarna when the head of Queen Nefertiti was unveiled. The infatuation with Egypt obviously continued. He bought this Phaidon edition on the art of Ancient Egypt, which was published in 1936.
