A new investigation confirms the age of paintings in the chauvet hollow and forces a description of the art history
In december 1994, jean-marie chauvet, who was at this time as a temporary supervisor for the hollow in the ardèche region at the french ministry of culture, made a sunday walk with two friends with two friends. Chauvet led her to a hollow and they went to explore. The hobby researcher had become curious about a rock in a stream by a breeze and what the three found, overtruft by far their expectations: a huge hollow system that has many different hollow paintings. There are 300 drawings of nashorners, auerochsen, lowen, mammuts, horses – big and expressive appears a whole bestiary in front of the eyes of the amazing viewer. Chauvet reported quite properly the discovery of the hollow and little later appeared the first specialist for hollow painting, which confirmed that it is palaolithic art, because he diagnosed the typical signs of erosion.
The professional world was critical, because an auxiliary overseer brought something so spectacular to light, the specialist seemed unlikely the specialist. The broken cowl bodied, more than one undertook, it had to be a false. Chauvet, so has been folded, have been done by the extremely impressive and dynamic drawings my own hand.
