An ambitious, thrilling and landmark work, Creation explores the remarkable endurance of humankind's creative impulse, and asks how - and why - we create. Art historian John-Paul Stonard has travelled across continents to take us on a panoramic journey through the history of art. In twenty-seven lavishly illustrated chapters, Stonard traces the evolution of art and its myriad influences from prehistory to the present day - from ancient Anatolian standing stones to a Qing Dynasty ink handscroll, from a drawing by a Kiowa artist from the Great Plains to a post-independence Congolese painting.
