L’Egypte dessinée by Bruno Cassiers
15, Rue des Minimes, 1000 Brussels
From wednesday June 5 till Sunday June 9, 2013
Opening hours of the fair.
Between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 20th, thousands of drawings and watercolours have been created in Egypt by gifted artists. This is also a period in which egyptian monuments have undergone spectacular transformations: while some were excavated and restored, others were destroyed altogether. Later on, several temples in Nubia had to be dismantled and rebuilt on new grounds.
L’ÉGYPTE DESSINÉE illustrates this subject with images selected among the most telling of 19th century artwork, side-by-side with views of the same monuments as they stand today, drawn by Bruno Cassiers between 1991 and 2009.
