According to Dr Jean Clottes, European Ice Age rock art, often called 'cave art', is well-known all over the world, because of the high quality & antiquity of its images. So far, about 350 sites have been discovered, from the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula to the Urals. Of these, nearly half of them are located in France. With the collaboration of the French Ministry of Culture & Communication, and under the guidance of Jean Clottes & Noël Coye, Conservateur du patrimoine, the Bradshaw Foundation presents Phase 1 of the French Cave Paintings Archive. Given the sheer number of major sites in France, our aim is to establish an archive that will grow over time, as further discoveries are made. Moreover, portable art - from the same periods and of equal importance - will be added to the archive.
