Wonderful Paul Jacoulet woodblock. It is titled Le Genie sans Noms. Coree (The Unkown Genius. Korea), published January 15, 1953. It is pencil signed and bears the Peony seal on the front and an elaborate PJ seal on the reverse. This design is illustrated at plate 127 of Miles, Richard, The Prints of Paul Jacoulet, 1982. The image measures approximately 15 ½ by 11 ¾ inches, plus full margins. What appears to be a nick in the bottom margin on the right was actually done intentionally at the time of printing to assist in the alignment of the wood blocks, and is indicative of untrimmed margins.

This print is in excellent condition and the colors are very fresh and intense. It came from a collection that had never been matted or framed!
