Monkeying Around (Paul McGehee)

"Monkeying Around" by Paul McGehee depicts a pair of playful monkeys in a tree. Vervet Monkeys are native to Africa but populate several Caribbean islands thousands of miles away across the broad expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. How did they travel so far from home? Back in the colonial era when sailing ships were running the trade route between Africa and the New World, the sailors would take monkeys along on the voyages to keep as pets...and sometimes, when they were in port, they would get loose! That is how the Vervet Monkeys have now become a common sight on the Caribbean islands of St. Kitts, Nevis, Jamaica, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Cuba and Barbados as well as the islands of the Bahamas and Bermuda. They are vegetarian, and known for their almost human-like characteristics. This pair (drawn by the artist on the island of Nevis) was observed picking through fruit trees while chattering and leaping from limb to limb. They are fascinating to watch! "Monkeying Around" is faithfully reproduced from Paul's original color pencil drawing as an archival quality print issued in a strictly limited edition of only 500 pieces each hand-signed by the artist. Image size 12 1/2" x 10 3/4".
