Salon de 1896 | Maitre de L’Affiche: Plate #108
This artwork is from Les Maitre de L’Affiche series; miniature versions of outstanding stone lithograph artworks of the most important advertising posters by the finest artists.
“Berchmans, for his part, astonishes with his power and vigor, and his output of posters was considerable…we can be sure to find solid draftsmanship with strong outlines, good sense of composition and accented colours. His most famous successes are of an astonishing modernism…The outline swells and thickens for the ‘Salon de 1896.’ The colours remain few, warm, poured into flat tints. Berchmans succeeds with simple elements. A perfect mastery of blacks and greys, seconded by one or two vivid colours, reds or oranges, strongly outlined drawing in a sober and clear composition. He left us a legacy of strong and vivid images that have survived the passage of time without a wrinkle”(Paris 1900, p.152)
