“In his review of Gottlob’s showing at the 1899 Salon des Cents, Henry Dragon summed up his feelings towards the artist’s work in La Plume in the following manner, ‘Gottlob didn’t go to the expense of colours. Monochromatic painting, subdued nuances, simple, almost rudimentary drawing, quasi-religious drawing. He serves himself by the most ordinary means and processes, and he has arrived to give us sensations of a profound intensity. He is here to give us all the melancholy, all the nostalgia of Bretagne, in a manner that is truly personal and rare’ (Salon des Cents, p.83).”(Rennert, PAI-XXIX, 372)
“The Salon of the Hundred, was a small gallery on the premises of the magazine ‘La Plume’ where promising designers displayed their work. The publication’s marketing arm, Editions d’Art, also issued these posters and decorative panels in various editions, often on quality paper as art for the home. The bottom half of these posters, there were 43 in all, is normally filled with text” (Gold p.132)
