LECONS DE VIOLON (VIOLIN LESSONS) 1898

Paul Emile Berthon (1872-1909) Together with the art of Alphonse Mucha, the lithographs of Paul Berthon stand at the centre of our interpretation of Art Nouveau grace and beauty. Despite his short life, it is impossible not to rank Berthon among the greatest masters of this turn-of-the-century art movement.

"An advertisement for a violin teacher, a young woman with her head leaning gently on a violin she is playing. Here again we have a country scene as a back- ground (as in most of his posters), with trees breaking the perspective. Her dress is of a greenish tint with Byzantine ornamentations, and her hair falls down grace- fully over her right shoulder. The general colouring is very soft, almost in one shade, but very artistic, and the composition is well-conceived." Excerpt from The Poster (art critic magazine) July 1898, p.68
