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 work of contemporary art. With `The Commandant` Poncelet has carefully matched the breed of the dog to the male sitter. Poncelet has captured the facial expression of the dog beautifully, which portrays an inquisitive nature with military sternness and echoes that of the sitter, creating a new portrait which combines gentle humour and classic portraiture.
