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 "Destiny" Poncelet has carefully matched the breed of the dog, a golden Labrador, to the sitter. Poncelet has captured the facial expression of the dogs beautifully which portrays an intelligent, strong and stern nature this is echoed of the sitter, creating a new portrait which combines gentle humour and a classic portrait.
