Jean Clottes’ Cave Art – A Review

If you are planning a trip to Europe to visit some of the spectacular caves with Ice Age art, or perhaps you have recently been and would like to know more, Cave Art by Jean Clottes is just what you are looking for. This is not a photographic celebration of some of the best known prehistoric art in Europe, it is an ‘imaginary museum’ that offers an accessible, guided tour of prehistoric art in Europe made between about 35 000 and 11 000 years ago. And, under Jean Clottes’ guidance you could not be on safer, less fantastical ground, for I am certain it is true that no single rock art scholar has seen more rock art around the World than he.
