A Journey into Prehistoric Art

The Exhibition and its Treasures

Préhistomania showcases prehistoric art, specifically parietal and rock art. Paintings from caves around the world are revealed to the general public through a selection of surveys. These surveys, conducted by ethnologists and prehistorians, provide valuable evidence of the condition and representation of cave walls at a given time. Among these forgotten artists, many women have contributed to the enhancement of these often hard-to-access pictorial works.

An Immersive Journey through History

The Préhistomania exhibition offers a chronological path that allows visitors to follow the evolution of the dissemination of rock art through the ages. From the early 20th century, when scientists, intellectuals, and artists embarked on a quest for the origins of humanity, to the reconstructions of life-sized caves or augmented reality, the exhibition provides a unique perspective on prehistoric art.
