A fine woodblock in colors with mica accents by Paul Jacoulet, this image measures 11 3/4 x 15 1/2 inches, published in 1948 in an edition of 250, although fewer than 240 impressions were printed. This print is pencil signed with the "Ivy" seal, cat: Miles-96, carved by Maeda, printed by Fujii and Ogawa. Miles describes this image as having a "rich and delicate surface" with "one of the finest of Jacoulet's mica backgrounds." The flowers on the young woman's blouse are also printed with a delicate silver metallic ink.

Painting

Harbor Nocturne

This is an atmospheric moonlit scene of a ship coming in to harbor, painted in oil on Academy Board and measuring 15 1/8 x 11 inches. It is obscurely signed "H. G. Lask..?" in the lower right corner; although we have not been able to determine the identity of the artist, this painting is certainly done by a skilled hand, very much in the style of James Gale Tyler. A very fine 19th century painting in an ornate period gilt frame.
