A fabulous satirical rendition of 17th century painting of A Scholar by Rembrandt, painted by Brighton artist Ant Fox. The portrait depicts Shakespeare as a chimp, echoing the famous infinite monkey theorem: Given enough time, a chimp punching at random on a typewriter would almost surely type out all of Shakespeare's plays. The chimp here is a metaphor for an abstract device that produces an endless random sequence of letters and symbols. The probability of this happening is really low, but the probability of this piece creating a conversation point in your house is 100%.
