Motion and Gesture: Analysing Artistic Skills in Palaeolithic Art

Abstract: The development of artistic abilities in Upper Palaeolithic societies has been analysed in recent years from the perspective of learning and transmission of artistic know-how, from both technical and formal points of view. Recent analyses, based on the study of the operational chains involved in engraving, have shown different levels of acquisition of technical knowledge among Magdalenian artists in Western Europe. This study presents the results of an experimental programme based on the analysis of the physical actions performed while executing artistic motifs. Different patterns of movement and orientation were analysed within a large group of engravers with different levels of technical ability in order to determine the gestural parameters that characterize the different stages of artistic learning. The results, which have been processed with statistical analysis tools, make it possible to differentiate with greater precision the different actions required to engrave on hard materials with lithic implements, as well as the different stages of acquisition of technical knowledge linked to the production of artistic motifs by engraving.
