Thierry Poncelet has been captivating art collectors with his wonderful and eccentric canine portraits called 'Aristochiens' for over twenty years. After deciding to give new life to some old ancestral portraits that he found in second-hand stores or markets, Poncelet’s ‘Aristochien’ series was born. Since then, Poncelet’s paintings have attained a unique place in the world of contemporary art. When choosing the most appropriate breed of dog for each portrait, the artist looks at both the general personality traits of the breed and the costume of the sitter, which results in an entirely new portrait combining gentle humour and classic portraiture. In this particular painting and as its title suggests, Poncelet was inspired to depict the scholarly pursuits of a student.
