Why We Love This

A fine impression of the definitive state, from the edition of 200. Signed on the stone lower left Paul Berthon. Catalogue reference: Victor Arwas, Berthon Grasset, London, 1978, no. 62. Paul Berthon studied painting and sculpting in his native town of Villefranche, but later transferred to the School of Decorative Arts in Paris. He was greatly influenced by Eugene Grassèt and soon become known as a Renaissance man, designing book bindings, ceramics, furniture and book illustrations. In 1895, he became attracted to lithography and began creating innovative posters. He was soon hired by the art department of the railroad, Chemins de Fer de l’Ouest, where he placed his indelible stamp on all imagery promoting the company. In his posters and decorative panels, he adopted the more formal quality of Grassèt, but imbued his creations with softer, pastel colors used to create a dream like effect. Berthon's work is in the style of Art Nouveau, much like his contemporary Alphonse Mucha. Even though Berthon lived a relatively short life, passing away at the age of 37, he created a distinguished body of art that celebrated beauty and grace. Today, his work is featured in major museum and private collections worldwide.
