"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 background (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 gracefully over her right shoulder. The general colouring is very soft, almost in one shade, but very artistic, and the composition is well-conceived" (The Poster, July 1898 p.68)

"Berthon took the imagery developed by Grasset and transformed it, creating a small but characteristic body of work which epitomises the Art Nouveau style on paper"
(Berthon & Grasset, p.8)
