7 Artworks to Celebrate the Year of the Monkey

As we swing into Chinese New Year, we welcome in the year of the Monkey, that mischievous and clever animal that lends its fun-loving traits to those lucky enough to be born under its sign. In celebration, and as Sotheby's prepares for Asia Week, we took a look at the use of this playful motif in Chinese art, from classical painting to snuff bottles.
