Description:

"Everyone is an artist." Embarking with this bold motto, Nigel Spivey takes us on a quest to find out when and how we humans began to explore the deepest questions of life using visual art forms. Spivey, who also hosted the PBS miniseries inspired by this book, reveals how artists from the earliest caveman to the most studied Renaissance master have grappled with the same questions in their work: What is a man? Why must we die? Is there a God? Packed with new insights into ancient wonders and fascinating stories from all around the globe, How Art Made the World is a compelling account of how humans made art and how art makes us human.
