A whimsical drawing of a young child-like chimpanzee seated in a parlor, evidently enjoying a cocktail, a tea kettle in the foreground suggesting that he is about to partake in other civilized human behavior. The drawing is unsigned. I researched a bit on the net to see if it might be by the artists who created Curious George, (Hans-Augusto Rey(Reyersbach) and Margret Rey), but the obvious lack of resemblance to that most famous cartoon ape indicates that this drawing is not of him. Nevertheless our drawing is well executed and obviously by a trained hand. The sheet measures 17" by 13 3/4". Currently it is temporarily housed in an inexpensive shallow poster type frame, just enough to protect it pending proper framing.
