AHIS Notes - Caves 19:36 Engraving from Louis Figuier,  L’homme primitif, 1870 Caption: “The precursors of Raphael and Michelangelo, or the birth of drawing  and sculpture in the Age of the Reindeer. People are engrossed in their work, completely absorbed in it. Very modern  figures, with all men. There is a huge assumption built into the drawing that art as  defined by the figures, is a category that undoubtedly did not exist. Clay Bison,  Le Tuc d’ Audoubert  (Ariege, France) c. 15,000-10,000 BCE

These are “really good” – there is a sense of the power of the animal, a  representation of its existence and a naturalistic sense of its volume. Not  anything we should expect from younger, childlike drawings.  Bison from ceiling of Altamira cave (Spain), c. 12,000 BCE These were regarded as a hoax when first found but they were noted as  “incredible”. Through the use of Carbon-14 dating, by referring to the amount of carbon is  inside organic matter, it provides us with about when these items were  painted/made.

Lascaux (France), Hall of the Bulls, c. 15,000 BCE We move from an outlining technique in the Lascaux to a more complex and  carefully finished renderings in the Altamira. Chauvet Cave (France), c. 30,000 BCE (Lions Panel).

You get a sense of the powerful beings of these animals. The musculator of the  limbs and the thickness of the neck are symbolic of these animals. For the most  part, charcoal is used either painted, drawn or sprayed on.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
