Comments: The monkey has in the art of many cultures been a stand-in for humans, showing us in our stupidity and foolishness. The print depicts humanly dressed wine drinking gentlemen monkey with dog of normal being at his feet.  Thomas Landseer, the brother of the more famous Sir Edwin Landseer, produced a series of 25 plates in the 1820’s showing monkeys engaged in various human pursuits, showing how humans are prone to behave like animals, rather than the other way around.
