Monkey Descending a Staircase?

3:00 PM -- A London auction house is offering Modern Art Fit for Picasso by Congo the Chimp.

    A collection of brilliantly colourful abstract works by a chimpanzee named Congo whose work was also believed to be owned by Picasso & Miró will be sold in a sale of Modern & Contemporary at Bonhams in New Bond Street on Monday 20 June 2005. Produced with tempera on paper, the works were painted by Congo (b.1954) at the age of just 3 years old...

    The collection of three works, estimated to fetch £600-800, will be sold amongst works by masters such as Andy Warhol and Renoir.
That ain't chimp change!
