Born in Paris. Dates given are from his tombstone, but birth is also reported as 1896. Father sent to Tokyo as a teacher; from age 4 Paul Jacoulet 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 features.** Taken in whole, or in part, with permission from: Merritt, Helen and Nanako Yamada.
