Monkeys and mere objects are interesting subjects because they embody the simplicity of life and living in the moment. The execution of a selection of works portraying both deploys skills handed down by the Old Masters. As a practising artist one cannot disregard the lessons that can be learnt from the past, particularly from each of the artists that have inspired some of the works in this collection. Their skills are still important and relevant, and their legacy must be preserved.
