Filled with stunning photos of key art objects spanning the timeline of three million years, The Artistic Ape offers a unique perspective and expert insight into two universal subjects: art and anthropology. Desmond Morris (author of course of the hugely successful Manwatching and Bodywatching) has translated his meticulous research into an accessible text that will appeal to art experts and appreciators of art all ages from 11 to 111.

Synopsis

The Artistic Ape Three Million Years of Art by Desmond Morris

Desmond Morris, bestselling author and internationally renowned anthropologist, offers a unique appreciation of art – from the most ancient artefact to contemporary event art. Featuring more than 350 illustrations of international art, plus 12 video clips, he combines his deep understanding of human behaviour and his love of art to create a narrative of the evolution of artistic endeavour over three million years.
