ARTISTS / Berthon, Paul

French 1872-1909

Berthon was a French designer and lithographer. He began his training in Villefranche, where he studied painting, and in 1893 he moved to Paris, entering the École Normale d'Enseignement du Dessin. There he became a pupil and disciple of Eugène-Samuel Grasset, the Professor of Decorative Arts, and celebrated artist. Berthon’s main work consisted of posters and decorative panels. However, he also produced bookbindings and furniture designs, both of which he exhibited at the Salon in 1895; designs for ceramics for Villeroy & Boch in the late 1890s; and a few designs for the covers of such magazines as L’Image (July 1897) and Poster (May 1899). His work is in an Art Nouveau style, and he adopted that movement’s plant and figural motifs, especially the motif of the femme fatale, and also its long sinuous lines. These features can be seen in such works as the poster Leçons de Violon (1898). Berthon distinguished himself in the production of large, coloured posters in the relatively new medium of chromolithography, some of which were printed under the direction of Jules Chéret by Chaix & Company.
