Paul Jacoulet
Le Phare de Mikimoto, Shimoda Izu (Mikimoto Lighthouse, Shimoda Izu)
Date: February 1954.
Fewer than 80 impressions made. This example is stamped "PRESENT" on the verso.
Size: 17.75 x 13 inches.
Signed and sealed with peony seal. Carver: Maeda. Printer: Onodera
Reference: No. 134 in The Prints of Paul Jacoulet by Richard Miles
Condition: Toning on verso. Please see additional photos showing partially trimmed margin.
Note: Miles writes, "In this scare work, Jacoulet returned to a technique that involved omitting the keyblock for the background. The naturalistic portrait of a kimono'd guest at Jacoulet's favorite inn at Shimoda seems to stand out from a powdery and almost ghostly scene that features the famous lighthouse. A psychological study of considerable profundity, Le Phare interested most early viewers for the sashimi, sake and lacquer rice bowl in front of the preoccupied subject."
