New Kingdom (about 1550-1069 BC): Painting

The most famous examples of Egyptian paintings are the wall-paintings on plaster, found in the Theban tombs and, more often, tomb-chapels. Other examples have survived, generally in more fragmentary condition, from the houses and palaces of Amarna. Many funerary objects were painted (Book of the Dead). Examples of New Kingdom paintings from other sites than Thebes and Amarna are not very common.
