Through an extraordinary journey which spans 100,000 years, author Charlotte Mullins celebrates art’s crucial place in understanding our collective culture and history, addressing intriguing questions such as, why did our ancestors make art? What did art mean to them and what does it mean for us today? Why is art important?

Introducing readers to a multitude of trailblazing artists through the ages from Giotto and Michelangelo to Kathe Kollwitz and Pablo Picasso (to name a few!), we learn of the seismic impact art has on assisting us with seeing the world differently and identifying our place within it; a form of self-expression, a fuel for creativity and its notable impact on our mental health.
