Thierry Poncelet has been captivating art collectors with his wonderful and eccentric canine portraits called "Aristochien" for over 20 years. After deciding to give new life to some old ancestral portraits that he found in second-hand shops or markets, Poncelet's "Aristochien" series was born. Since then, Poncelet's paintings have attained a unique place in the world of contemporary art. In "Le Colonel", Poncelet has carefully matched the breed of the dog, a Setter, to the military portrait that he has used. Poncelet has captured the facial expression of the dog beautifully, which portrays the military bearing in a classic portrait style. The choice of dog beautifully captures the heroic posture of a Senior Officer in the Army.
