Collections Khmeres du Musee Albert Sarraut a Phnom Penh, Les

     
   
      

This book contributes to the study of Khmer archeology, displaying the best pieces of the Phnom Penh museum on fifty splendid plates. The Albert Sarraut Museum, set up in 1919, is the national museum of Cambodia. Apart from a few rare exceptions, it preserves only Cambodian works found in the country itself, from those that can be dated to the most distant epochs to those which are produced nowadays by artists working in a renaissance style. Thus, because of its unity and diversity, it allows the reader to obtain an overview of the evolution of Khmer genius, whether in the production of statues, decorative sculpture, ceramics, bronze and precious metals art, pure or iconographic plastic arts, epigraphy, or history.
