From October 12, 2022 to May 22, 2023, cave paintings fans are expected at the Musée de l’Homme for the latest exhibition of the museum, “Art et Préhistoire” – “Art and Prehistory”.

A genuine travel in time! This is what the Musée de l'Homme proposes from October 12, 2022, to May 22, 2023, with their latest exhibition, Art et Préhistoire. An exhibition taking you to discover lots of masterpieces from the prehistoric art from all over the world, returning on the “power of humane creativity from the dawn of time”.

Murals from the Lascaux and Chauvet caves, paleolithic beauties, decorated tools, animals sculpted in ivory, rock or bone… in all, over 90 original pieces from prehistoric art will be presented to visitors, as well as a hundred digital pictures, paintings and engravings for a unique journey to the heart of immemorial time. An exhibition also trying to show the “diversity of art forms and unexpected expressions”.

Among the most iconic pieces displayed, let us name the Venus of Lespugues, the Vénus de Vibraye, or even the mammoth from La Madeleine, coming from the museum’s collections. As a light to these cave paintings and pieces from parietal art, are also displayed pieces inspired by this time by Louise Bourgeois, Brassaï and Yves Klein.

A great exhibition to see this Fall. Save the date, friends!
