Prehistoric Art

“Prehistoric Art: The art of painting on the walls of caves lasted from the beginning of the Old Stone Age to the end of the New Stone Age, around 3000 B.C. The Paleolithic cave paintings at Altamira (Spain) and those at Lascaux (France) have been dated between 40,000 and 10,000 B.C.”
