Overview

Text by Bruce McCall. "Exceptional book . . . the best of humor . . . refreshing. Delightful!" is how George Booth describes Sit! in The New York Times Book Review. Working in the dog-as-person-as-art vein of William Wegman (but at the other end of the spectrum), Theirry Poncelet combs flea markets and antique shops for ancestral portraits; restores them brush-stroke by brush-stroke; and then seamlessly paints in a dog's head over the subject's. The resulting tour de force is a fantasy that looks uncaninely real. Selection of the Book-of-the Month Club.
