About this book

Language: French

This beautiful book is dedicated to the art of the Upper Paleolithic and is the fruit of twenty years of research in French and Spanish caves. The intention of the author is to approach the subject in a "global" way, studying both the status of painters, engravers, sculptors, and the intentions that led them to adorn these underground networks. The diversity of the themes figured, the graphic quality of the images, and the technical mastery suggest that our ancestors were trained in the art of representation and approached the cave like real ornate architecture.

This book offers a wide variety of quality images, mostly unpublished and made by the author. Professor of prehistory at the Free University of Brussels, Marc Groenen worked in many ornate caves. He currently directs the study of the El Castillo cave (Cantabria) and is part of the Chauvet cave team.

Summary in French:
Ce beau-livre consacré à l’art du Paléolithique supérieur est le fruit de vingt années de recherche dans les grottes françaises et espagnoles. L’intention de l’auteur est d’aborder le sujet de façon «globale», étudiant à la fois le statut des peintres, des graveurs, des sculpteurs, et les intentions qui ont conduit à orner les réseaux souterrains. La diversité des thèmes figurés, la qualité graphique des images, la maîtrise technique laissent à penser que nos ancêtres étaient formés à l’art de la représentation et abordaient la grotte comme une véritable architecture ornée.

Cet ouvrage offre une grande variété d’images de qualité, pour la plupart inédites et réalisées par l’auteur. Professeur de préhistoire à l’Université libre de Bruxelles, Marc Groenen a travaillé dans de nombreuses grottes ornées. Il dirige actuellement l’étude de la grotte d’El Castillo (Cantabrie) et fait partie de l’équipe de la grotte Chauvet.
