BERTHOMMÉ DE SAINT-ANDRÉ (French / 1906-1977)

Louis-André Berthommé de Saint-André was born in Barbery (Oise). He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris under Fernand Cormon and Paul Laurens. As a painter, Berthommé de Saint-André exhibited at all the major Paris Salons. Berthommé was a prolific artist, and was particularly at home in the medium of lithography. Our lithographs include marvellous colour images by Berthommé de Saint-André reminiscent of the work of Bonnard and Vuillard, inspired by Maupassant’s Le Maison Tellier. We also have a series of explicitly erotic lithographs included as a suite with a deluxe edition of de Musset’s Gamiani, but not illustrating that text – instead, Berthommé took the opportunity to demonstrate his virtuosity as a draughtsman and lithographer, as well as to poke fun at the clichés of French erotic art.
