Mr Monkey in London, 5th January

"He was an excellent painter, that Holbein chap"

Mr Monkey took an underground train from Green Park to Pimlico, then scampered down to the Tate Britain. He dashed in with a lot of other people to see a special exhibition called Holbein in England. For the next hour or two, Mr Monkey was fascinated by the detail of the paintings of Hans Holbein the Younger.

You can read about the exhibition at the Tate website, and see images of Holbein's work at the Web Gallery of Art.

As photography wasn't allowed in the exhibition, Mr Monkey is standing in front of Holbein's portrait of Henry VIII, on loan from the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza of Madrid and on the front of the exhibition catalogue.
