Le Billet Doux

by Paul Jacoulet (1896-1960)

Abstract

Color woodblock print, 15-1/2 x 12". “The Love Letter†[le billet doux] depicts a Mongolian woman crouching and turning round to meet the viewer’s eye. This image is printed on gold-flecked paper, and uses silver and gold ink sparingly to produce a subtle richness. The round purse at her waist is embossed. Jacoulet was born in Paris, but from a very young age lived in Japan.
