And today we tend to keep family memories especially in photographic albums. These unusual paintings below have the particularity of immortalizing not human beings but domestic animals.

The result, these majestic and humanized portraits that celebrate your special pet and transform it into a celebrity that represents the figure of Napoleon, a beautiful princess or an illustrious bookseller.
