    Statue of Nofret wearing a wig and bead necklace (detail). Painted limestone statue from Meidum, Egypt; 2620 BCE, Old Kingdom (4th dynasty); height: 1,18m She was part of the royal entourage of Pharaoh Snofru, King of the 4th dynasty, and held the title "one known to the king". Her husband was Prince Rahotep, who was High Priest of Re at Heliopolis, Director of Expeditions and Chief of Construction. The quality and beauty of this marvellously preserved seated statue of Nofret, along with a statue of Rahotep in the same style, found in 1871 in their brick mastaba at Meidum, confirms her high rank. It is not unlikely that it was created by highly skilled sculptors working for the royal ateliers. The face of the statue expresses the same solemness and self-assuredness as the royal statues of the same dynasty. The realism in this statue is increased by the glass inlaid eyes and its realistic size.

    The Rake's Levee (A Rake's Progress) 1735 A levee is a reception held by a monarch or other high-ranking person on arising from bed. Tom is spending his inheritance on suppliers of expensive (and in particular unnecessary) services who try to encourage him to ape the aristocracy. The pictures on the wall, however, show his lack of taste, scenes from classical mythology hang next to pictures of game-cocks. The characters in the picture would readily have been identified by Hogarth's contemporaries as real life London citizens. They include a paid bodyguard who lookes like a criminal, a jockey (kneeling in the front), a dancing-master with a kit-violin (a small three-stringed violin), a huntsman (blowing a horn), a music master, a French fencing master, a quarterstaff (a wooden staff used as a weapon) instructor, a landscape gardener (behind the Rake, with a drawn plan), a poet, and a tailor. Oil on canvas; 62,5 x 75 cm
