"Berchmans, for his part, astonishes with his power and vigour, 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
