'While his works are diverse ... they celebrate foremost the womanhood of our time ... These are thoroughly modern works which capture brief, reverent moments of joy, tenderness and wonder, much like the works of Sargent, Helleu or Besnard.Belleroche's portraits of woman are iconographic' (RogerMarx, 'Peintres-lithographes Contemporains: Albert Belleroche', Gazette des Beaux-Arts I, vol.39, 1908,p.74).

Along with Paul Helleu, Belleroche produced some of the most evocative images of belle-Èpoque women of his generation.
