Fascinating Egypt


29/01/2017

By Jean-Michel Bruffaerts, Scientific associate of the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels

Egypt fascinates, and one Belgian in particular, Jean Capart (1877-1947) contributed significantly to this fascination by unearthing precious fragments of information that still hold our attention today. But who was Jean Capart? 70 years after his death, few remember this great Egyptian art specialist who founded Egyptology in Belgium and was a central figure of cultural and scientific life both in Belgium and abroad in the first half of the 20th century.
