A Website Featuring Osaka prints and other Japanese works of art
We specialize in kamigata-e, original eighteenth-nineteenth century Japanese woodblock prints from Osaka and the surrounding region. We also offer occasional nineteenth-century Edo prints and twentieth-century art works from Osaka, Tokyo, and other regions of the world. Our inventory is
comprehensive and always changing, with a broad range of artists and prices.
Gallery: Our Sales Gallery is arranged by artist. Each print is accompanied by a full description.
Articles and More: We offer Articles on
topics related to Osaka prints, many covering aspects of Japanese printmaking that have been overlooked in
the standard literature. Various essays on a variety of other topics can be found at Varia.
We also maintain an Archive of the
information pages for all sold prints. An extensive Glossary, artists'
Biographies & Signatures, and detailed
Bibliography serve as additional resources. A recent addition to our site is a Video presentation offering an introductory overview of kamigata-e.
