This painting is inspired by the Old Master painting of ‘Mona Lisa’ by Leonardo da Vinci, 1503. I was inspired to paint this because of my love for the old Master style of painting, and the elegant fashion of the ladies and gentlemen of that time.
All of my primate paintings in the style of the Old Masters have deep significance. I admire the old styles and the techniques used. It’s my way of bringing them up to date. I want to draw out the similarities between human beings and our monkey counterparts. They have human qualities in the same way that we are all basically harbouring animal instincts and desires.
This painting is framed and measures 26×30″
