ARTS PORTFOLIO / ICE AGE ART & MURANO GLASS

The question ‘Is it art?’ is answered in two compelling exhibitions: ‘Ice Age Art: Arrival of the Modern Mind’ at the British Museum, London, which looks at these 20,000-year-old masterpieces as art rather than artefacts; and ‘Fragile Murano’ at the Musee Maillol, Paris, which examines Venetian glass from the mid-15th century to the present day.
