At the same time, he acknowledged Bernard as the pioneer and main representative of the pared down Synthetist style that he aspired to cultivate in his own writing. He would publish 49 Bernard’s hand-coloured zincographs first in L’Ymagier and then in his own magazine, Perhinderion, linking his personal aesthetic principles to the artist’s. Jarry’s and Gourmont’s L’Ymagier project turned out to be one of the most significant contributions to nineteenth-century French illustration. The initial editorial statement emphasizes the magazine’s commitment to popular imagery, especially coloured religious images from the Épinal factory.

Jarry saw him as a genuine mystic and was struck by the originality of his work. Filiger was one of the few painters close to Gauguin who had managed to maintain a powerful vision of his own. His homosexuality made him an isolé on two counts and a doubly deserving subject from Jarry’s point of view. This was his first critical article and he had nothing to lose. ‘Critic’ was none the less a dirty word in range of Gauguin’s hearing.
The passing scenery is full of familiar landmarks, each harbouring a specific memory or carrying a particular significance relevant to Sengle the child or teenage cyclist, but which the foot march embitters and annuls. He recognizes the bank where he used to chase crickets into their holes and block them up with his penknife; a rocky downhill track, that had once provided an exhilarating frameshuddering ride on his bicycle, is entirely without excitement for the marching soldier. Sengle’s attempts to absorb the passing landscape and enjoy its associations, such as a pond where he used to watch the water beetles, are interrupted by whistle blasts and orders.
