Guam Museum adds Surimono Prints and extends Paul Jacoulet Exhibition
4 December 2017 — (Hagåtña, Guam) Sixteen miniature prints, or surimonos, by the artist, Paul Jacoulet, have been added to the Guam Museum’s current exhibition, “Paul Jacoulet: Vision of Micronesia and Asia.” The additional surimono prints from the 1940s and 1950s expand the 100 prints, sketches and watercolors by Paul Jacoulet, and the collection of historic artifacts, that have been on display in the exhibition since its opening in November.
Extremely popular among Jacoulet print collectors because of their rarity, the Jacoulet surimonos depict smaller copies of limited edition prints and two unique compositions. Just in time for the holiday season, these surimonos were issued by Paul Jacoulet as souvenirs and during the Christmas season.
In addition, The Guam Museum has extended the exhibition, “Paul Jacoulet: Vision of Micronesia and Asia” to run until Sunday, January 14, 2018. Pre-Arranged and educational tours of the exhibition are available. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday (closed on Mondays), 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information or to schedule a tour, contact 989-4455 or visit www.guammuseum.org.
