Like humans, chimp artists have personal styles and, like human beings, some chimps like to paint while others don't. (According to Fouts, females like painting more than males.) Now the real ape artists are being mocked by less competent animals. Zoq elephants with paint APE ART From IE out to Morris when he wanted to move on to another sheet," writes '. Thierry Lenain, a lecturer on es-:; thetics and the philosophy of art at ; the Free University of Brussels, in Belgium, whose scholarly book Monkey Painting was translated into English this year. "To remove the page before the end, or to insist that he contin-- ue with a painting judged by him to be complete, would cause considerable annoyance." Although ; ;Morris decided Congo was "not a '. great artist," the Institute of Con- temporary Art in London exhibit-; ed his works in 1957, and his 'paintings fetched prices close to , those of nonape artists. One work was purchased secretly for the brushes stuck in their trunks are supposedly painting like chimps. And Why Cats Paint, a book pub lished two years ago to mock the monkeys, gleefully discusses the putative symbolism of clawed mastered a version of American Sign Language and so were finally able to "talk" about what they had been painting. For example, when Patterson asked Koko what her red, yellow and blue painting was, she answered "bird. Roger Fouts, the author of Next of Kin: What Chimpanzees Have Taught Me About Who We Are and professor of psychology at Central Washington University, agrees that apes are doing representational art. For him, one clue is consistency. When Washoe is asked to draw a dog, she always ends up with a circular radial pattern in the upper left corner that comes down diagonally to the center, ending in a long loop at the end. If asked, "What is this?" she will give the sign for "dog." When she draws a basketball, it is always just a scribble across the page. Apparently, Fouts says, she depicts not the shape of the ball but its motion. Of course, he adds, "it requires some human interpretation." But what art doesn't these days? The bottom line, Fouts insists, is that a chimpanzee is different from humans in degree but not in chairs and the esthetics of feline installation art, i.e., dead mice dumped artfully on the floor. Not to worry, say the of primate painters. Apes are fundamentally different from cats and elephants. "It is part of ape nature to paint," Fouts says.
