Monkey Plate V




In the Age of Science, no artist capitalized on the trend of linking man and nature better than George Luis Leclerc Buffon (1749 – 1804).


His largest body of work Histoire Naturelle placed animals and beasts against backdrops of civilization. Each creature has an almost human expression.


We have reserved a special section for the Monkey prints that were found in the same volume. As a grouping or in pairs, they deserve a place of their own.
