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 Le Montagnard (the mountaineer) Poncelet has as usual carefully matched the breed of the dog to the rather carefree attitude of a person who gets excitement from climbing mountains and the challenges that are presented to him. The facial expression and the attitude of someone who feels totally in control of what they are doing, is brilliantly arrived at by the artist in every detail. The viewer can imagine the character is from an earlier time, nothing will phase him and the girls will be enchanted.
