Eastern Aristocratic Monkeys

I saw these paintings on BoingBoing & thought they were pretty cool.

They are paintings of dignified monkeys, dressed as aristocrats in oriental styles.

 I love the gallery description: "Lindsey Carr’s exquisite watercolor and gouache paintings evoke the specter of Audubon if he had spent time in a Chinese opium den."

Here is the website for the artist's show:
