ARENT VAN BOLTEN’S “MONSTER’S RIDDEN BY APES”

bolten-mock

DESIGN: Very little is known about the Dutch artist Arent van Bolten. We do know he was born at Zwolle ca. 1573 and was actually a silversmith by profession. His artistic output ranged from grotesque figures and monsters, to figural scenes from the Bible and mythology. Among them is this rather strange piece depicting two monsters each ridden by a monkey, one of whom appears to be caught in mid fart.

SIZE: Available in a wide variety of sizes.

PAPER: Available on a variety of different papers from normal poster paper, through to heavyweight archival and premium canvas – prices starting from around $14/€12/£10.
