African Rock Art : Paintings and Engravings on Stone
by David Coulson, Alec Campbell
(Hardcover - May 2001)

Dawn of Art : The Chauvet Cave: The Oldest Known Paintings in the World
by Jean-Marie Chauvet, et al
The 1990s have witnessed a sort of renaissance in cave art, thanks to new discoveries from the south of France.

When these three spelunkers-turned-authors happened upon the Chauvet cave (named after one of them), however, they visited an underground art gallery that had been closed for 30,000 years. It's still inaccessible today, except to specialists. But this wonderful book of pictures and text allows virtual tourists to appreciate the creations of our remotest ancestors. This may be primitive art in the literal sense of the term, but it's remarkably sophisticated.

Cave of Altamira
by Antonio Beltran (Editor), et al
This splendid volume offers a fresh look at one of the finest surviving works of Paleolithic art: the paintings in the cave of Altamira in northern Spain. Discovered in 1879, these vivid likenesses of horses, cattle, and bison seemed so fresh and "modern" that critics doubted their authenticity, and suspected an elaborate hoax. Only in 1905, with the first scholarly analysis of the works, were they finally accepted as Paleolithic art. Charts, maps, and descriptions guide readers through the... The Publisher
