Spring Sale 2013
We are pleased to announce an especially broad spectrum of prints for our spring website update.
Forty-four Japanese woodblock prints and paintings are featured, ranging across the 19th and 20th centuries, with a focus on affordability. The overall emphasis is still on works produced in the Kansai region, but a couple of items claim only somewhat tenuous Kamigata connections.
In addition to our usual assortment of clean and rare Osaka prints and paintings, notable among the offerings this time are a handful of hard-to-find works by the 20th-century Kobe printmaker Kawanishi Hide, and a bold postwar abstract piece by Murai Masanari.
We hope you enjoy browsing the site, and look forward to hearing from you.
As always, each piece is fully described with very detailed condition reports.
