Autism - a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.

Concluding that these cave men were autistic because they had an eye for detail and were good artists, seems like a large logical leap.

I believe true artists are actually incredibly healthy. You see, someone that is totally healthy appreciates everything in life and can sense the beauty in everything around him. It is likely that these cave artists made these paintings because it made them feel good. Not because they were autistic. This is typical 'modern' thinking, thinking that doing hard/long work makes you different than normal. The opposite is true, people that can't work hard or focus on tasks for long periods of time are sick/ill/malnourished.
