«ART IS WHAT YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH»

«When I was young I had a great fear and dislike of monkeys.  By and by I came to see it was foolish
and I decided to get over it. So I went at every opportunity I got to the London Zoo  and I looked the monkeys fairly and squarely in the face. Then I got interested, then fascinated. Now I own one and she has brought all kinds of fun into my life. If Ottawa should send out modern work for us to see, do think of my monkey and remember that tastes can be acquired».
