Order No.: 296384-C5516-1
In its perfection and beauty, the elegant "Tea Déjeuner Egyptian Landscapes" invites you to travel through time with pleasure to discover what the horizon of cultures hides and still produces. The founding of the "Institute d'Égypte" in 1798 was the beginning of Egyptology today. An expeditionary corps of mathematicians, artists and Architects, found the "Stone of Rosette", whose inscriptions in 1822 enabled Jean-François Champollion to decode the hieroglyphs. Overwhelmed by the discoveries, findings and drawings soon reached Paris. Knowledge and lively euphoria about past cultures influenced science and the arts from Paris to Dresden.
