Santander: Fundacion Botin, 2013. Softcover. VG. Black & illus. wraps, French flaps, 211 pp., color illus. Text is in Spanish, with section of English translations at the rear. Issued in conjunction with a 2013 exhibition that "brings the histories of art and humanity together. The exhibition is centred on the epoch of the famous cave art of Altamira. This was a virtual 'renaissance' period in the Ice Age that meant the advent of new techniques, different styles and a characteristic range of decorative and figurative art. Sculptures and drawings of humans and animals dating from between 22,000 and 12,000 years ago, alongside other modern pieces by Miro, Matiwse, Hecht and Pasmore, demonstrate that the techniques and concepts used have not changed much with the passage of time." (p. 183) With an introduction by Jill Cook, and a vivid catalogue of pre-historic art pieces.
