Recent Auction of a Congo the Chimp Painting

A recent auction held at the Mayor Gallery in England recently saw a Communications Consultant from California pay $25,000 for a painting.   The sale of a painting is normally not unusual nor is the price unusual paid at auction unusual.  What makes this unusual is that the painter was none other than a talented chimpanzee named Congo.

Congo originally started drawing lines on a piece of paper.  Later he tried his hands at painting.  He produced hundreds of works from the age of two to four.   His favorite color was red and his least liked color was blue.   It has been reported that both Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali both owned original Congo paintings.  Born in 1954, Congo passed away from tuberculosis in 1964.
