We are kicking off our two day auction event with a sale of prints by Ukiyo-e and Meiji artists.  This sale will be held on Saturday, December 5, beginning at 11:00 am Chicago time, exclusively on the LiveAuctioneers Platform.  We will add a link directly to the sale once it has been posted.

HOLIDAY NO RESERVE AUCTION

Our two day auction event continues on Sunday, December 6th, with a No Reserve Auction of Japanese Prints from all genres, and replaces our traditional Holiday Exhibition and Sale on our website.  Expect a large selection of prints perfect for gift-giving or adding to your own collection.  This auction will also be exclusively on the  LiveAuctioneers Platform.  We will add a link directly to the sale once it has been posted.  (And of course, purchases from both days can be shipped together.)

20% OFF IN 2020

Our New Year’s Resolution for 2020:  Have a continuous offering of 20 prints and paintings, with at a 20% discount, during 2020.  We made this New Year’s resolution pre-Covid, when we weren’t having auctions almost monthly.  We will keep some prints discounted 20% in this exhibition, but may not always be at 20 prints.
