Works in this gallery originate from Amarna, a site in Middle Egypt where Amenhotep IV, later called Akhenaten (ca. 1353–1336 B.C.), founded a new residence. Others cover the years directly after Akhenaten's demise, especially the reign of King Tutankhamun. Akhenaten propagated the exclusive worship of one aspect of the solar deity: the light of the sun. In the arts, the king's innovative religious ideas opened up an equally innovative period of naturalism and emotional expression.
