Subject matter ranges from the figurative, including flora, fauna, and Classical mythology, to abstract geometric motifs.
The workshop was specialized in graphic design for advertising and R. Pichon, active in the years 1910-1940, was working for the Lorilleux printing house for which he realized many models in the 1920/1930.
