NEW EXHIBITION – TAKE A RIDE WITH SHIGEKI KURODA

Our first exhibition for 2023 features a selection of over 50 etchings and original works by Shigeki Kuroda (b. 1953), who is best know for his images of bicyclists with umbrellas.

NEXT AUCTION FRIDAY MARCH 3

Currently Shin Hanga prints are trending.  So our March 3 auction will be exclusively works by Shin Hanga artists and Western artists working in the Shin Hanga tradition.  Included in the sale will be works by Baldridge, Hasui, Hiroaki, Jacoulet, Koitsu, Koson, Miller, Shinsui, Shiro, Shoson and Hiroshi and Toshi Yoshida.  We plan to have the auction posted by the middle of February.

TOSHI YOSHIDA – THE START OF SOMETHING NEW: 1950s

Following the death of his father in 1950, Toshi began exploring abstraction in his prints, as well as pursuing the traditional representational work inspired by Hiroshi Yoshida. Our exhibition of his abstract work from the 1950s includes 50 prints, including some extremely large and rare works. Our Eyes on North America and On Safari Exhibitions are still online.
