In an exciting collaboration between the Fundacíon Botín, Santander, and the British Museum, London, the histories of art and humanity are being united in a new exhibition, Art in the Age of Altamira. The curator is Jill Cook, Deputy Keeper of the Department of Prehistory and Europe, British Museum.
Using sculptures and drawings of humans and animals from the period 22,000 to 12,000 years ago alongside modern works by Miró, Matisse, Hecht and Pasmore, as well as a film installation reflecting the synesthetic experience of creating art in artificial light underground, the exhibition reveals that the concepts and techniques used have changed little through time.
