Love for animals and irony: in show there are ‘aristocani’
Lucia Landoni

The San Bernardo dresses as a Judge and the dogo argentine those of a nineteenth-century gentleman, while the labrador turns into a Countess and yorkshire in a sophisticated damina: the Aristocans are the protagonists of the works of Milanese artist Daniela Ria, exposed to March 6 at the Le 3 Melarance restaurant in via Orti, Milan, within the exhibition ‘Pets & Love’. The painter, who has portrayed four-legged friends of many personalities, beginning with the dog of former American President George W. Bush, ranges from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, from the eighteenth century to the Victorian era, in a continuous swing between realistic interpretation and imagination. The exhibition is curated by Giuseppe Iavicoli for Possible Spaces.
