AZIMM, MICHEL & GÉRARD RÉVEILLAC (EDS.)
Karnak Dans L'objectif de Georges Legrain . Catalogue Raisonné Des Archives Photographiques Du Premier Directeur Des Travaux de Karnak de 1895 à 1917. 2 Volumes
. Le nom de Georges Legrain reste à jamais attaché à l'histoire des temples de Karnak : dirigeant les travaux pendant près d'un quart de siècle, de 1895 à 1917, il effectua le dégagement général du site et d'ambitieuses restaurations, comme la reconstruction de la grande salle hypostyle après l'écroulement d'une partie de celle-ci en 1899. Legrain a réuni, selon ses propres dires, la plus belle collection de clichés de Karnak du XIXe siècle. Étant lui-même excellent photographe, il a fixé régulièrement sur ses plaques la progression des chantiers, réalisant parfois de véritables reportages pour illustrer leurs étapes les plus significatives. Les images qui ont survécu forment une collection cohérente et unique qui fait revivre les opérations menées sur le site. Avec cet ouvrage, le lecteur suit Legrain pas à pas dans le quotidien des chantiers et redécouvre le progrès des fouilles, l'ampleur des restaurations et la valeur des découvertes. 2 volumes in fine slip case. 2004, Volume 1 (textes) : 400 pages Volume 2 (illustrations) : 416 pages. 1205 illustrations here presented together for the first time.
