Résumé :
Since 1907, the École française d’Extrême-Orient (EFEO), or French School of Asian Studies, has been playing a pivotal role in research and conservation at Angkor, the site of a major Asian metropolis abandoned to the jungle in the 16th century.
This catalogue contains one hundred and height images – chosen from amongst the thousands held in the EFEO’s archives – of the site’s principal temples before they were cleared of vegetation and rubble and during and after the restoration process.
Essays written by the EFEO specialists present the School’s archaeological work in its historical context and provide an introduction to more recent discoveries.
At once a memorial and a work of reference, this publication will appeal to all those, professionals and amateurs alike, with an interest in the arts of Southeast Asia.
