The Artistic Ape

Three Million Years of Art

Desmond Morris

In 1967 Desmond Morris published The Naked Ape, his pioneering study of human behaviour patterns; now he brings his expertise as a surrealist painter to a history of ‘the complex activity that we refer to as art’. Looking back to the earliest known visual art, he uncovers the biological roots of the human species’ artistic impulses, compares pictures made by non-human animals and examines how traditions around the world have reflected art’s evolution from prehistoric times to the present.
