LES CAVERNES DU VOLP
Trois-Frères – Tuc d’Audoubert
From Henri Bégouën and Henri Breuil.
Format 21.5 cm x 28 cm, 165 pages, bound paperback
This is a very limited re-edition of the first Volp caves monograph (Arts et Métiers graphiques, Paris 1958) unobtainable for many years.
This new edition, at 90% original size, was entirely produced and financed by the American Rock Art Research Association (ARARA) in 1999, with an afterword (French/English) by Robert Bégouën and an up to date bibliography and several colour photographs.
It sums up the essential then known regarding the caves of Enlène, Trois-Frères and Tuc d’Audoubert. The emphasis is clearly on the parietal art of Trois-Frères, which alone occupies three-quarters of the work; the exhaustive copies by Abbé Breuil are themselves a real technical and artistic achievement. It is the ideal complement to the new “La Caverne des Trois-Frères” monograph.
