160 pages, 67 illustrations, 15 in full colour
Towards the end of the 1950s biologists, investigating the question of how art originated, came up with the idea of getting monkeys to paint pictures. Drawing on a large body of historical and scientific evidence, this fascinating book sets out a new interpretation of quasi-artistic behaviour in monkeys, showing that there may be a fine line between it and 'true' art.
'[Lenain] cannot help let slip an infectious fascination with our primate cousins ... [he] succeeds in making his book unputdownable'
