Ice Age art: arrival of the modern mind
An exhibition 40,000 years in the making.
7 February - 2 June 2013
Discover masterpieces from the last Ice Age drawn from across Europe in this groundbreaking show.
Created between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago by artists with modern minds like our own, this is a unique opportunity to see the world's oldest known sculptures, drawings and portraits.
These exceptional pieces will be presented alongside modern works by Henry Moore, Mondrian and Matisse, illustrating the fundamental human desire to communicate and make art as a way of understanding ourselves and our place in the world.
