About the artist

Paul Jacoulet (1902 – 1960) was born in Paris before moving to Japan to establish himself as one of the best  recognised Western woodblock printers in the country. He was most productive from 1939 to 1960 when he produced exceptional studies of Japanese nationals in indigenous dress. His work stood out for its strikingly original style which combined traditional woodblock printing methods with techniques he developed himself. Prints by Jacoulet are relatively rare and greatly sought after with only one hundred and sixty six known works.
