Paleoart Book by Taschen Publishing in an unprecedented new book by writer Zoë Lescaze and artist Walton Ford, presenting the astonishing history of paleoart from 1830 to 1990. These are not cave paintings produced thousands of years ago, but modern visions of prehistory: stunning paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, mosaics, and murals that mingle scientific fact with unbridled fantasy. This paleoart collection provides an in-depth look at this neglected niche of art history and shows how the artists charged with imagining extinct creatures often projected their own aesthetic whims onto prehistory, rendering the primordial past with dashes of Romanticism, Impressionism, Japonisme, Fauvism, and Art Nouveau, among other influences.
With an incisive essay from Lescaze, a preface by Ford, four fold-outs, and dozens of details, this paleoart art collection showcases artworks culled from major natural history museums, obscure archives, and private collections. Paleoart Book also includes new photography of key works, including Charles R. Knight’s seminal paintings in Chicago and little-known masterpieces such as A. M. Belashov’s monumental mosaic in Moscow.
