The origin of the painting is unknown. The first important records of this art are met with in Egypt; but before the Egyptian civilization, the men of the early ages probably used colour in ornamentation and decoration, and they certainly scratched the outlines of men and animals upon bone and slate. Traces of this rude primitive work still remain on the pottery, weapons, and stone implements of the cave-dwellers. But while indicating the awakening of intelligence in early man, they can be reckoned with as art only in a slightly archaeological way. They show inclination rather than accomplishment. _______________
