About the book:

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 behavior 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"The London Magazine
