Paul Jacoulet was a Parisian-born woodblock print artist that based himself in Japan for most of his life. He combined traditional ukiyo-e style and his own techniques to create the unique style Jacoulet is known for. He is considered one of the few Western artists recognised in Japan to have mastered the art of woodblock printing. His work is almost exclusively portraiture centred around indigenous peoples and their traditional dress. This made his work not only artistically but also anthropologically interesting.
