Paul Jacoulet was a French, Japan-based woodblock print artist known for a style that mixed the traditional ukiyo-e style and techniques developed by the artist himself. Jacoulet is considered one of the few western artists to have mastered the art of woodblock printing sufficiently to be recognised in Japan. His works are almost all of people, either portraits or full body images capturing some background details.
The artist travelled extensively to various islands in Micronesia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Although his most valued works are from this part of the world, he also has a substantial number of prints with subjects from China, Korea, all areas of Japan, and Mongolia.
