The Chinese Gamblers – Jacoulet, Paul

Sold

Two Chinese men are playing a dice game. The figures appear to float against an abstract background of bright yellow and orange-red. The subtle designs on the caps worn by the figures were achieved through masterful overprinting of grey on black and black lacquer on dark grey.

Seal of the carver, Kentaro Maeda, lower left margin. Paper embossed with Jacoulet imprint. Published: 7 June 1941. Slightly trimmed and toned.
