Aristochiens

Posted on by Damien Jamet

I am so obsessed by these dog heads painted on old aristocrates' portraits that I had to share this! This is the work of Thierry Poncelet, a Belgian artist whose picture on his website could make you think he is a random countryside guy with a very old-fashion taste for interior and clothes...Anyways, this guy had the genius one day to replace the boring face of an aristocrate which he was renovating the portrait, by the one of his dog! The result was so striking that he decided to apply the same idea to an other painting, with an other dog, etc. He has, since then created a huge collection of what he calls "Aristochiens" who are now reproduced on cushions and other home accessories.
