"The beautiful and engaging baby orangutans at the Orangutan Foundation in Borneo are real characters. They are all orphans and are learning life skills so they can return to the wild when they are older. Making nests so they have a fresh bed every night is one of those and this fun painting captures the magic of baby orangutans in their beds gazing at the stars."
John Dyer: In the 1950s simple neutral frames became popular for St Ives artists. John chooses an off-white so the lightest tones appear in the painting. The moulding is a variation of 'Salvator Rosa' from Italy. Hand finished in almond white paint.
