We have direct relationships with artists, their families and estates as well as a dense network of contacts that make us the leading gallery in sourcing material.

Our Japanese art catalog includes works from all genres – Ukiyo-e, Meiji, Shin Hanga, Sosaku Hanga and Contemporary, as well as a selection of Western artists who worked in Japan or otherwise follow Japanese print making techniques.  Some of the artists we have (or have had) include Azechi, Hasui, Hamaguchi, Harunobu, Hashimoto, Hiroaki, Hiroshige, Hokusai, Hoshi, Inagaki, Kiyokata, Kogan, Koitsu, Koizumi, Koson, Kotondo, Kunisada, Kuniyoshi, Maki, Mori, Munakata, Nakayama, Onchi, Saito, Sekino, Shinshui, Shiro, Shoson, Shunsen, Teraoka, Toraji, Toyokuni III, Tsunetomi, Watanabe, Yamaguchi, Yoshida and many more woodblock print and painting artists.

ANNUAL CHRISTMAS IN JULY AUCTION

Our annual No Reserve Christmas in July Auction was an overwhelming success, with over 92% of the lots finding new homes, and several more sold in after sales.  Due to these fabulous results, we have decided to have a similar No Reserve Holiday Auction in December instead of our traditional Holiday Sale and Exhibition on this website.

If you have prints  that you would like us to consider for inclusion in that, or any of our other future sales, please email images to Auctions@FloatingWorld.com

UKIYO-E AND MEIJI PRINT AUCTION RECAP

Our Grand Auction of Ukiyo-e and Meiji prints, held on June 13, was a resounding success, with 81 of the 100 lots selling during the auction, and 3 more selling immediately afterwards.  We are planning another Ukiyo-e and Meiji sale for November 7, 2020.  Please email us if you have prints you would like us to consider for inclusion.

20 WORKS FOR 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.  As items are sold from this exhibition, new items will be added, so be sure to check back regularly.
