"Although Jacoulet depicted his island models in full frontal poses often in his sketches, this is his first pair of figures that challenge the viewer in such an un-Japanese way in a print. The unusual eyecolor, and the subtle variation in skintone make this simple design one of Jacoulet's most successful." (R. Miles)
