Description

An Asian boy sitting on tree stump with a large yellow hat mourning the death of his father. The piece is signed in pencil on the plate and with chop mark, titled in the lower right margin. Jacoulet was born in Paris. While the dates bellow are from his tombstone, his birth is also reported as 1896. Jacoulet's father was sent to Tokyo as a teacher, so from age 4 he lived in Japan. Self-taught as an artist, he produced 166 known prints. With the exception of a few published by Kato Junji in 1934 these were self-published; carved by Yamagishi Kazue and Maeda Kentaro. Subjects include South Sea islanders, Mongolians, Manchurians, Koreans, and Ainu as well as Japanese. His decorative colorful style is a hybrid of Oriental and Occidental characteristics.
