The painter Daniela Ria from Milan, is well known for her precious series of dogs and cats portraits called Aristodogs & Noblecats. She reached the success in 1990 with her first important exhibition hosted at the antiquarian art gallery “Il Servo di Scena” in Milan, where she exhibited her paintings, emblematic of her passion for dogs and cats. From a photo she catches an expression, a proud glance, a peculiar pose, and then she transforms the subject into a true character, interpreting the personality of these animals and providing them with emotions and sensations from different historical periods. She surrounds the images with elegant light effects, picturesque landscapes or interior backdrops such as plush draperies, stately libraries, and other effects. The portraits are created using acrylics on canvases.
