PAUL JACOULET,"THE TWO ADVERSARIES (LEFT)"
¡°The two adversaries (left)¡± and ¡°The two adversaries (right)¡± were published 5 December,1950. The carver was Maeda; the printers were Honda, Uchikawa and Onodera. Both have Paul Jacoulet¡¯s pencil signature and red Arrow seal on the lower corner. They are in excellent condition. ¡°This simple but highly symbolic pair reveals Jacoulet's feelings toward the North Koreans. In his public dedication to President Truman, the artist expressed ¡°gratitude for aid given so promptly on behalf of free Korea against being overrun by Communist forces¡±. Note the gauffrage of the fighting cock¡¯s feathers, and the differences in the northern and southern mountainous shapes behind the young handlers. Richard Miles, The Prints of Paul Jacoulet. P.110, Robert G. Sawers, Publishing, 1982. (1 of 2)
