Exhibits >> Souvenirs of Modern Asia

This online exhibition was created to complement the exhibition Souvenirs of Modern Asia: The Prints of Paul Jacoulet, held at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art from June 26, 2012 through February 03, 2013. The exhibition was curated by Dulce Román, Curator of Modern Art, and Allysa B. Peyton, Curatorial Associate for Asian Art. Both exhibitions provide an opportunity to take a closer look at a truly original and fascinating artist in the history of the graphic arts.

In addition to a selection of seven woodcuts from the Harn Museum exhibition, this online exhibition features a unique set of five letters written by the artist. These letters form part of an extensive archive that also includes photographs and printed material related to the artist. The archive was generously donated to the University of Florida by Eugene Finkin whose mother, Dorothy Finkin, was Jacoulet’s New York dealer. The Harn Museum expresses sincere appreciation to Linda and Eugene Finkin for their generous gifts and loans which made these exhibitions possible.
