Even those who know Fritz’s drawings and watercolors well are always amazed at how few strokes and colors are used in some of these works. Various shades of brown well proportioned, an absolute minimum of charcoal strokes for the four eyes, and yet a dense and complete picture of this mother monkey with child emerges. Baboons can hardly be depicted any better.
