Ice Age Art: Arrival of the Modern MindDiscover masterpieces from the last Ice Age drawn from across Europe in an exhibition 40,000 years in the making. Some of the world's oldest known sculptures, drawings and portraits - including a bison sculpted from mammoth ivory about 20,000 years ago - will be presented alongside modern works by Henry Moore, Mondrain and Matisse, to explore art as a form of communication and worldly understanding.
