This comprehensive overview considers the currently known Pleistocene palaeoart of Asia on a common basis, which suggests that the available data are entirely inadequate to form any cohesive

Epidemiology of human culture: parietal rock art requires high population density

Demographic models of human cultural evolution have high explanatory potential but weak empirical support. Here we use a global dataset of rock art sites and climate and genetics-based estimates of

Diffusion of cultural innovation depends on demography: testing an epidemiological model of cultural diffusion with a global dataset of rock art sites and climate-based estimates of ancient population densities

It is concluded that population density above a critical threshold is a necessary condition for the maintenance of rock art as a stable part of a population’s cultural repertoire.

Stabilization of cultural innovations depends on population density: Testing an epidemiological model of cultural evolution against a global dataset of rock art sites and climate-based estimates of ancient population densities

There is evidence that population density above a critical threshold may be a necessary condition for the maintenance of rock art as a stable part of a population’s cultural repertoire.

U-Series Dating of Paleolithic Art in 11 Caves in Spain

Dating of calcite crusts overlying art in Spanish caves shows that painting began more than 40,000 years ago, revealing either that cave art was a part of the cultural repertoire of the first anatomically modern humans in Europe or that perhaps Neandertals also engaged in painting caves.
