The visual brain, embodiment, and the first visual cultures: what can they tell us about "art"
Finally, I read online about Derek's interest in primates. I wonder if monkeys also paint like Mondrian? As a matter of fact, at a chimpanzee art context in 2013, the painting of the chimpanzee who won the $10.000 first prize shared some vague similarities with Mondrian and the Lascaux painting (picture 5). Does this validate Derek's working hypothesis? (even knowing the chimpanzee painted it with her tongue?)
