"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 1900, p.152)
