In this scarce work, Jacoulet returned to a technique that involved omitting the key-block for the background. The naturalistic portrait of a kimono'd guest at Jacoulet's favorite inn at Shimoda seems to stand out from a powdery and almost ghostly scene that features the famous lighthouse. A psychological study of considerable profundity, "Le Phare" interested most early viewers for the sashimi, sake and lacquer rice bowl in front of the preoccupied subject. - Miles, pg. 119
