Thematic Changes in Upper Palaeolithic Art: A View from the Grotte Chauvet

Abstract

Trustworthy dates on charcoal from the classic European painted caves have given a sharper view of images and their making in the later Palaeolithic. The new Grotte Chauvet has its own original themes, revealing a striking and an unexpected Aurignacian art with – again – dates from charcoal in which one can have confidence.
