DO YOU HAVE JAPANESE PRINTS THAT NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY?

We will identify, value, and offer them for sale through our private network of collectors, dealers and institutions, as well as our public sales at Floating World Auctions.

Floating World Gallery is one of the world’s foremost authorities on Japanese prints and paintings. Since 1986 we have appraised tens of thousands of prints and facilitated over $100 million (USD) of transactions matching buyers and sellers.

PAST CLIENTS

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“The Everson Museum of Art deaccessioned many Japanese woodblock prints from its collection because they fell outside of the museum’s mission of collecting
American modern and contemporary art. We chose to work with [FWG] to auction the prints on the recommendation of other museums, and are extremely satisfied with the results. The staff is professional, dependable, and committed to getting the best outcome for the museum. We would absolutely work with [FWG] again in the future.”

Steffi Chappell

Assistant Curator
The Everson Museum

“Over the prior two decades, [FWG] has worked with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art … to deaccession duplicate prints or those that are unusable for exhibition, scholarship, or educational purposes. [FWG’s] estimates
are accurate, and [they have] developed a system of auctions suited to museum standards for ethical and proper deaccession… I highly recommend [FWG] for the sensitive process of deaccessioning Japanese prints for museums.”
