On some occasions Paul Jacoulet printed the same subject with different backgrounds. These two 1937 editions of Premier Amour. Yap. Ouest Carolines
were identical, except the background of one (left) was a passionate red ($2200) and the other was a pale beige ($2090), triggering totally different visual impacts.

Eldred Company's Oriental Art Auction, East Dennis, Massachusetts, August 19-24, 1996.
