A Red-handed Tamarin
From the collection
This creature belongs to a species of small, clawed monkeys found in the Amazon region. The artist most likely drew it from a mounted specimen, which according to an annotation on the verso of the drawing was in the collection of the Rotterdam-Dordrecht merchant Pieter Havart.
