Description
According to Richard Miles, this print, a gift intended for the artist's mother on her birthday, was being distributed at the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Jacoulet's mother died before she could see the work, and Jacoulet never reprinted it despite its immediate success. The model is reputed to be the old servant who trained young Jacoulet in calligraphy, and remained with him for many years.
