At least as early as Hendrick ter Brugghen’s 1627 painting “Bacchante with a Monkey,” the monkey has been used as a symbol for drunkenness. The one featured in the Anisetta Evangelisti advertisement by Carlo Biscaretti certainly is. Gleefully throwing back a bottle of dessert wine, this monkey’s clearly not pacing himself. Can a “care-frontation” be far behind? This wood poster, intended for indoor use, comes complete with hangers, so it’s ready to hang right out of the box.
