During the 1920s in America, all eyes were seemingly on the discovery and subsequent opening of King Tutankhamun's tomb. For a brief period the decorative arts reflected this fascination with all things Egyptian. This influence is today referred to as Art Deco Egyptian.

Here is a magnificent example of this popular culture obsession as painted by renowned illustrator Rudolph Schabelitz depicting the presentation of a pectoral and necklace to Princess Sat of Egypt 1800 B.C.

This oil on canvas retains its ornate gold gesso wood frame and comes with a partial tear sheet for The Ladies Home Journal of April 1926, showing a published example of this work.
