The world's oldest known sculptures, drawings and portraits are being exhibited in this pioneering show which displays masterpieces from the last Ice Age.
Created between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago, many of these exceptional pieces are made of mammoth ivory and reindeer antler. Although they were created long ago, the talented artists were already beginning to experiment with scale, light and perspective.
The ancient works will be presented alongside modern pieces by Henry Moore, Mondrian and Matisse, to show the basic human desire to communicate and make art as a way of understanding ourselves and our place in the world.
Tickets to this exhibition are selling fast and advance booking is essential.
