Salon de Paris #4 is part of a series that parodies the 19th Century French Romantic artists, dandies and intellectuals. This work depicts a tradional, bust-length portrait of a monkey dressed in a brown suit and vest with white neck tie. The monkey is posed with its mouth open as if caught in speech. The surface appears to be intentionally aged, coated with an application of cracking medium. Nobrega has created an tneire cast of characters. It is a portrait of the poet Arthur Rimbaud, aged around 18.
