Rousseau's bizarre humor is his usual mix of horror and fantasy. The picture shows us a family of monkeys huddled together. Are they afraid of something as they stare out of at the viewer? But what of the milk bottle? Where did that come from? And the poor monkey left behind almost hidden in the center of the painting.
His best-known paintings depict jungle scenes, even though he never left France or saw a jungle. His inspiration came from illustrations in children's books and the botanical gardens in Paris, as well as tableaux of taxidermy wild animals. Known for his fantastic scenes, Rousseau was a self-taught artist whose works appealed to the collectors and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century, including Pablo Picasso.
