Mellerio, an art critic, wrote this volume as a defense of the artistic merits of color lithography, which he argued "is neither a facsimile of, nor a substitute of painting; it is another process lacking certain elements, but with its own charm, of equal artistic value and the appreciable advantage of a printing with numerous copies." In 1898, the rules of the Salon were changed to allow color lithographs to be submitted to the annual juried art exhibition.
