Ancient Egyptian art carved for itself a permanent place in the annals of great artistic periods of history. The legacy of ancient Egypt has been passed on and actively absorbed by the modern generation of Egyptian painters and sculptors. The past fifty years in Egypt have been a period of true renaissance for the artist. The ancient forms have been translated into a new and vibrant expression which, though determinedly individualistic, has a constant underlying unity in its ancestral foundations.
