by Paul Jacoulet (1896 - 1960)
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction
Paul Jacoulet - Born in France, Paul Jacoulet moved to Japan with his parents as a young child. He began creating woodblock prints in 1934, specializing in romantic, exotic portraits, many of which were inspired by his travels in the South Seas. He hired the best carvers and printers to produce his woodblocks, working as his own publisher and personally overseeing each image. Produced in small limited editions, his works were lavishly printed with mica, gold, silver, and powdered semi-precious stones, and some involved up to 300 blocks to create one image. His rare and exquisite shin-hanga designs are highly regarded and prized by collectors.
