  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Hans, Unfortunately we don't sell any reproductions of paintings in our museumstore at this moment. But there are online webshops that do have reproductions of paintings. So I would like to advise you to take a look there. Good luck!

  • Mechteld Jansen asked

    Is de affiche van dit schilderij (als aankondiging vd tentoonstelling destijds) nog beschikbaar?

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Beste Mechteld,
    In de bibliotheek hebben wij wel affiches van tentoonstellingen, helaas is deze op het moment niet te bezoeken. Op de webshop verkopen wij wel de tentoonstellingscatalogus 'Oskar Kokoschka - mensen en beesten' met hetzelfde schilderij op de cover. Hierbij de link naar de catalogus; https://webshop.boijmans.nl/NL/webshop/0/0/5/48351. Ik hoop dat ik je hiermee verder heb kunnen helpen! Groet, Sofie

More information

Kokoschka painted the mandrill in London Zoo. In his painting he emphasizes the wild, untamed nature of the animal, in a sense giving it back its freedom. Nothing in this painting makes you think of small cages and thick bars. ‘When I was painting him, I saw [that] this is a wild, isolated fellow, almost like a mirror image of myself. Someone who wants to be alone.’
