I was with a friend tonight, talking over dinner. [...]And does anyone believe we were “helped” along, to produce this “3d” art?

Question. Do you yourself even understand perspective? Have you ever studied it, do you know about vanishing points and how lines must go to the vanishing points to have successful perspective?
Many here have stated already, it was not an overnight change into a more three dimensional art. Many artists, mainly in Europe made attempts at perspective, but their vanishing points were all over the place. It was a gradual change, very gradual.

There are cave paintings in france that have incredible perspective, and are drawn not only in 3D, but are planned with the Natural rock formations being parts of the animals.
FOr example the protrusion of a rock would be the shoulder of the Bull. Natural cracks running in the walls of the cave would be the creases of skin, etc. The animals depicted actually appear to be running, jumpring, due to the artistry that these cave painters possessed.
These are spectacular paintings, far and away a sophisticated artform, beyond anything we would expect. These paintings are dated at 30,000-40,000 years old.
