Belleroche began his career as a painter but after about 1900 worked mostly in lithography. He specialised in romantic portraits of women which he drew in crayon directly onto the lithographic stone. One of his prints is shown here alongside the stone from which it was printed. The stone has been 'cancelled' by scoring through the image.
