A smartly dressed monkey, in a green chequered suit and grey overcoat, stands facing the viewer, smiling, with his left hand on his chest, and his right hand by his side. His attire is that of a typical Victorian photographer. Based on the genre of Singerie or 'Monkey Trick', depicting monkeys apeing human behavior, often fashionably attired, always with a gentle cast of mild satire.
