Earl Ertman, “Images of Amenhotep IV and Nefertiti in the Style of the Previous Reign”

Quote :

Earl Ertman University of Akron emeritus history of art professor, has contributed a paper on Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep IV and his Queen Nefertiti to the Dankschrift, Causing His Name to Live: Studies in Egyptian Epigraphy and History in Memory of William J. Murnane, published by the University of Memphis Department of History. Ertman's paper is Images of Amenhotep IV and Nefertiti in the Style of the Previous Reign. The paper reminds us that even though the reign of Amenhotep IV, also known as Akhenaten, was noted for the elongated, mannered representations carved during their reign, they can also be found depicted in a style reminiscent of that of his father, Amenhotep III, early in his reign, which feature none of the distortions so familiar from the early period of the Amarna Style. Ertman discusses several of these examples, with illustrations.

Isn't in the tomb of Ramose that both styles are shown, one of Amenhotep IV and one of Akhenaten?
