There are as teachers luc-olive-merson and chevann bed.Among the courses taken at the time, those of the professor of decorative art eugene greasy. He's made a bigger impact.
Like the latter, he moved in the second half of the 1890s. Towards an art nouveau style. Like marrice billiard verneuil, the first works of paul berthon (circa 1896) show a style similar to that of greasy. By freeing himself from the style of his master, his own style develops on the basis of a palette of autumnal pastels, with clear lines and contours.
