Description  
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, Poncelets Aristochien series was born. Since then, Poncelets paintings have attained a unique place in the world of contemporary art. In "Les Amis" Poncelet has carefully matched the breed of the dogs to the sitters. Poncelet has captured the facial expression of the dog beautifully which portrays a thoughtful and friendly nature. Poncelet appropriately also matches the breed of dogs to the costumes of the figures which results in an entirely new portrait combining gentle humour and classic portraiture.
