       Japanese Prints & Japanese Paintings


Welcome!

This website gives you an overview of my stock of Japanese prints and Japanese paintings.
This stock is growing steadily, and its emphasis is now decidedly on 20th century Japanese woodblock prints, shin hanga, and especially on sōsaku hanga (prints by artists belonging to the so-called creative art movement, which started around 1900).
The phrase "Japanese Prints" covers a wide area; in principle all prints shown are woodblock prints, though a limited number of lithographs and etchings are also offered. These categories are clearly indicated in the descriptions of the prints.

In principle all prints and paintings shown are for sale.
A special feature of this website are the woodblock prints by contemporary artists, both Japanese and non-Japanese. Especially the latter category is very interesting: often referred to as "New Hanga" (= "New Woodblock Prints") artists, people like Paul Binnie and Tom Kristensen carve woodblocks in the same manner as Japanese woodblock print artists, and they also use very similar printing techniques, printing on handmade Japanese paper.

This website is updated very regularly, and a major update takes place once a month, the date of which is announced on the home page.
Latest update: 8 December 2014

Do not hesitate to ask for additional information about the prints or paintings that are for sale.

Japanese woodblock prints are generally ōban size, i.e. approximately 25 x 38 cm. or 10" x 15". Different sizes are indicated in the descriptions.
