This exhibition features some of the worlds oldest sculptures, drawings and portraits, created across Europe between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago. To illustrate the idea that the minds of these long ago artists were not that different from our own the pieces are presented alongside modern works by Henry Moore, Mondrian and Matisse.
