A thrilling journey through 100,000 years of art, from the origins of mark making to art’s pivotal role in culture today.
Why did our ancestors make art? What did art mean to them and what does their art mean for us today? Why is art even important at all?
Charlotte Mullins brings art to life by focusing on those who made it, from teenage prodigies to nonagenarians. This little history introduces us to overlooked artists, busts a few art history myths, and celebrates global networks of art, from Japan and India to South America and the Middle East.
