    Enlarged image can be found here (along with a brief description), or at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    The Monkey Painter (AKA Interior of a Studio ) is only shown online by its current-location page at present, the source of the different coloration framed title image. Another different coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here.

    Another The Monkey Painter by this artist can be found here, and a sample (doesn’t include The Monkey Connoisseurs) of his other simian themed works can be found here; but there are many examples available online. His Wikipedia page (Google translated French Wikipedia page has more) and collection.

    So far, 2 works by this artist have appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog.
