Book Reviews - Fayum Portraits by Berenice Geoffroy-Schmeiter

UK Kirkus Review » Miraculously preserved in the shroud of the desert sands, the people of Roman Egypt secured their immortality by having their likenesses captured in extraordinarily expressive and beautiful portraits painted on coffins - a severe matron displaying her sumptuous jewels; a youthful soldier of ambiguous charm; a young woman with a childlike, melancholy grace. But who created these beguiling images? What society was rich and proud enough to show itself this way beyond death? This charming book pieces together the secret of these ancient portraits, and presents reproductions of 57. (Kirkus UK)
