Preview – Antony Gormley: How Art Began

Antony Gormley

The man behind the Angel of the North looks into the history of early cave paintings.

There have of course been many documentaries about this subject, but most of the time it is covered by historians or archaeologists. Here, we have an actual artist discussing the art, which is not just seen in Europe, but recent discoveries show that cave art can also be seen in Australia and Indonesia.

Antony Gormley: How Art Began is on BBC Two at 21.00.
