The Tolman Collection of New York

New York, NY

The Tolman Collection of Tokyo, my parents' gallery, is the world's largest publisher of contemporary Japanese print editions and supplies galleries around the world. Having been brought up in Japan in this milieu since childhood, I have forged close personal relationships with many of the now established artists and been instrumental in bringing the younger generation of artists to global recognition. Both The Tolman Collection of New York and the Tolman Collection of Tokyo are known for our educational approach to print showing, for our tradition of buying entire editions and mentoring artists through exclusivity contracts, and for the pristine condition of the works that we show.
I am a second-generation dealer in Manhattan, in my case by appointment only, and regularly participate in art fairs across the United States. I am thrilled to be in demand as a lecturer on the topic of Japanese art, and am actively involved in building private, corporate and museum collections of contemporary Japanese works on paper, with a particular concentration on prints.
