Its Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him in recognition of his many contributions.

Paul Jacoulet

Was a French, Japan-based woodblock print artist known for a style that mixed the traditional ukiyo-e style and techniques developed by the artist himself. Jacoulet is considered one of the few western artists to have mastered the art of woodblock printing sufficiently to be recognized in Japan where he lived from the age of 4 until his death. Lavish use of gold, silver, platinum, mica, mother of pearl and powdered semi-precious stones, coupled with his use of as many as 300 different blocks for a single print, make Jacoulet's body of work unique.
