Japanese Woodblock Prints

Japanese woodblock prints and their amazing colors have appealed to print collectors for hundreds of years. After being almost exclusively known inside Japan and in China for centuries, these works increasingly made their way to Europe and the Americas in the 19th century. To this day they remain some of the most collected works on paper. Legendary names like Hiroshige, Hokusai, Hasui Kawase are known to many. But thanks to the tireless efforts by some of the exhibitors in our show, color woodcuts by many artists will be available. We are proud to say that some of the most respected dealers specialized in Japanese woodblock prints are part of the West Coast Print Fair.
