The World of Paul Jacoulet

For ease of reference, the prints in this catalog are numbered to correspond with those in previous catalogs. When I prepared the first catalog of Jacoulet’s work in 1975, I organized the prints from the research material available to me, putting them in chronological order within their various seals. When Richard Miles prepared his book on Jacoulet in 1982, his method of numbering showed some variations. Consequently, the prints have come to be known by two numbers, i.e. Craig or Eldred numbers and Miles numbers.

The prints in this catalog are listed first with the title in French as it appears on the print, followed by my rough translation. Jacoulet always gave credit to his carver and printer, and the name of the carver and/or printer is often stamped on the margin of the print. Where these appear, they have been noted. For those who are new collectors, the following excerpts from previous catalogs may prove of interest. Paul Jacoulet’s prints were not on sale in shops. He evolved a system of obtaining monthly subscribers who received a copy of the “print of the month”. Jacoulet published his prints in series, each distinguished by a seal of his design which incorporated the stylized Japanese characters for his name in a design of some conventional object. From his many years of training in calligraphy, Paul Jacoulet acquired a subtle feeling for brush stroke and the nuances of meaning given to different thickness’ of the “living line”. He transferred his skill with the brush into skill with the pencil, and thus became the only artist to attempt and to master the ability to draw the “living line” with this instrument. This makes his prints unique. No Japanese brush artist can produce this original touch; nor can a western artist, lacking years of calligraphic training. Paul Jacoulet was able to claim many “firsts”. He was the first foreigner to become a master of the ukiyo-e art, being worthy to rank with the Japanese masters. He was the first ukiyo-e artist to use more than 50 blocks for a print; he frequently used from 200 to 300. He was the first artist to record the vanishing nobility of Mongolia. He was the first print artist to extend the application of ukiyo-e beyond the borders of Japan, for he also recorded the “floating world” of the South Seas and mainland Asia. In true ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) fashion, Jacoulet portrayed vanishing customs almost as if he foresaw that those modes of living would float away. No wonder then that in all of Jacoulet’s prints there is some sadness, a hint of the deeper side of life. Perhaps that is why one is drawn to look again and again at his prints. Susan M. Craig-Schofield, Cataloger
