Paul Louis Joseph Berthon was an Art Nouveau period French poster and lithography artist. Berthon's work resembles that of his contemporaries Alphonse Mucha and Privat Livemont in its ethereality and softness, most particularly with his landscape panels, like this one.

Berthon studied painting and decorative arts, both of which influenced his printmaking and influencing the sharp lines and natural details which guided his art. The vast majority of Berthon's lithographed posters did not include advertisements (like this panel)  and were meant to stand on their own.

This poster is unlined, and in excellent condition, ready to frame.
From a private collection.
