Abstract and Keywords

This chapter, covering the period from the late eighteenth century up until 1850, presents the pioneers of Egyptian epigraphy with their different backgrounds and qualifications for the tasks ahead. From the beginning, gifted artists produced impressive architectural drawings, but the standards of accuracy in copying reliefs, paintings, and hieroglyphs only developed over time depending on the aids and funds available and, eventually, the entire complicated process of printing.

Keywords: pioneers, epigraphy, artist, architectural drawing, copying
