`Thierry Poncelet has been captivating art collectors with his wonderful eccentric canine portraits called `Aristochiens` for over thirty 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. In `Le Penseur` (The Thinker) Poncelet has carefully matched the breed of the dog to the male sitter. He has captured the facial expression of the dog beautifully, which portrays a deep and thoughtful personality echoing that of the sitter, creating a new portrait which continues the theme of gentle humour with classic portraiture.
