The oldest drawing recorded is a 27,000 year old portrait found in a cave in France. It was found by a local man in Vilhonneur cave, and is the portrait of a man drawn in calcium carbonate. There are also other drawings in the cave, but the portrait seems to be the oldest.
The oldest cave paintings ever found are in Chauvet Cave near Vallon-Pont-d’Arc in southern France. These paintings are unusual because unlike other Paleolithic cave art that featured the horses, cattle, and reindeer that were a part of people’s everyday lives, the painting at Chauvet Cave featured predatory creatures, including lions, panthers, bears, rhinos, and hyenas. The only human figures in the cave are a Venus-like figure, featuring the genitalia and legs of a woman, and the “Sorceror,” who has the body of a man and the torso of a bison.
