Dawn of art : the Chauvet Cave : the oldest known paintings in the world by Jean-Marie Chauvet( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In December 1994, in the Ardeche Valley of southeast France, three explorers chanced upon the hidden entrance to an underground cavern. Digging away the rubble, they made their way through a narrow passage into a vast cave, and there made one of the most thrilling discoveries of modern times: The Chauvet cave, named for one of the discoverers, which had been untouched for thousands of years. It was filled with Stone Age cave bear skeletons and footprints, the blackened remains of fires, and, most importantly, walls covered with more than three hundred extraordinary paintings and engravings of animals
Chauvet Cave : the discovery of the world's oldest paintings by Jean-Marie Chauvet( Book )

Now closed to the public, the cave and its extraordinary legacy (some 15,000 years older than the renowned paintings at Lascaux) have been seen by only a privileged few hence, the need for such a book which recounts the story of this extraordinary discovery and whose remarkable photographs of the paintings show each wall in clear detail, revealing the mastery of the prehistoric artists
