An Amarna bibliography

Art Museum Journal (Stan Parchin)

The endless fascination with ancient Egyptian art and civilization during the revolutionary age of the "heretic" pharaoh Akhenaten (r. 1353-1335 B.C.) and Tutankhamun (r. 1332-1322 B.C.) continues to inspire the publication of quality color-illustrated studies. Suitable for scholars, students and enthusiasts, many are exhibition catalogues authored by respected museum curators, archaeologists and art historians. Most are available in bookstores and through Internet retailers.

Books are listed under the following headings:
  • General
  • Prelude to Amarna
  • Akhenaten and Nefertiti
  • Tutankhamun
  • Photography of Tutankhamun's tomb and its contents
