The Grand Masters of the Chauvet Cave

The paintings and drawings of the Chauvet cave – made 36,000 years ago and discovered 20 years ago in the south of France – are the oldest human artistic expression to date. Their strength and modernity changed radically all the ideas we had on prehistorical art. The creation of an important museum devoted to the reproduction of the works allows a close-up on the paintings, the drawings and the engravings. The Grand Masters of the Chauvet Cave enables us to understand their incredible techniques and feel their intact emotional power.
