Paul Jacoulet was an artist born in Paris around 1900 and died in 1960 in a Tokyo suburb. He spent almost his entire life in the Far East including south Pacific islands Korea and most of all Japan. He was a meticulous artist who mastered the art of the Japanese woodblock (ukiyo-e). He offered a very unique blend of east and a touch of the west in his figured. His use of color is unrivaled. Beginning in the decade before his death Jacoulet woodblocks gathered a justifiably devoted following and are always in demand. The god of longevity is a favorite Asian theme and rendered so well in his inimitable style.
