Vieillad au Chapelet "Kawadzu"
This is a remarkable portrait by Paul Jacoulet, image size 15 2/8 x 11 7/8 inches, published in 1940, cat: Miles-68. It is numbered 124 on the back of the sheet and according to Miles fewer than 350 impressions were printed. It is pencil signed with the butterfly seal in the image, as is common with most of Jacoulet's prints. Paul Jacoulet was born in France but grew up and lived most of his life in Japan, the influence of which is quite evident in his vibrant Asian style color woodblock prints.
