a few prints by Paul Jacoulet

Born in Paris, Paul Jacoulet was raised in Japan from an early age. He designed and produced astonishing woodblock prints which are a mixture of traditional ukiyo-e printmaking of highest standards and new lavish techniques invented by the artist himself. The exquisite quality of Jacoulet's prints, the most published in limited and numbered editions, was due in great part to his exacting standards, and his use of costly materials like mica, crushed pearl and powdered metals.
The nine prints presented here were purchased in Japan, around 1950, by a Milanese collector, fascinated by their extreme refinement.
