Japanese limited edition woodblock print by French artist Paul Jacoulet (1902-1960) titled "After the Dance" (Apres La Danse. "Celebes") published June 29, 1940. This image is illustrated on page 59 (plate 67) of “The Prints of Paul Jacoulet” by Richard Miles, 1982. It is described on pages 104-105. The print is pencil-signed and bears the red butterfly seal at the lower left corner of the image. The seal of the carver and printer (Maeda/Fujii) is at the lower right margin corner. A red seal verso holds an edition number 333/350 (second printing). The 'PJ' watermark is at the lower left margin. The title is at the right side of the bottom margin. Paper size: nearly 18" x 14" (image size: 15 3/8” x 11 3/4”). Very good overall condition with full margins and metallic highlights. The print is somewhat faded and sunstruck, with a line visible in the margins where the previous mat ended. There are two small pieces of brown tape at the top margin edge on the front. There is minor soiling evident. This print was purchased directly from Paul Jacoulet in Karuizawa, Japan by the owner's mother.
