Paterne Berrichon (1897)


French poet, painter, sculptor and designer best known as the husband of Isabelle Rimbaud, and the brother-in-law and publisher of poet Arthur Rimbaud.

In his edition of Rimbaud's works, for which he had obtained the backing of Paul Claudel, Paterne Berrichon made at least a third of the poems and about two thirds of the correspondence disappear. Berrichon was the friend of Claudel and maintained a prolific correspondence with him from 1912 until 1919. He also created paintings, for which his wife often modelled, and sculpted a bust for the Rimbaud monument in the poet's birthplace, Charleville-Mézières. A publishing house, established in Crest, Drôme and specialising in poetry, called itself the "Enemies of Paterne Berrichon" to denounce the distorted and commercialised practices of Rimbaud's brother-in-law.

His wife Isabelle Rimbaud died in 1917. He married again in 1919 and died on 30 July 1922 at La Rochefoucauld at age 67.
