Egenolf Gallery Japanese Prints

ASIA WEEK NEW YORK 2024

Supernatural: Cat Demons, Ogres and Shapeshifters

March 16 – 17, 2024
Special Asia Week Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 11am-6pm & by appointment

We are pleased to present Japanese prints of cat monsters, shapeshifting beauties, and other fantastic scenes of the supernatural during Asia Week New York. Spectral scenes were essential ingredients of kabuki plays, and ukiyo-e of the time reflect the excitement and drama of this mainstay of 19th c. popular culture. Kuniyoshi’s designs of demonic cat ghosts are especially remarkable, as he was a master of feline imagery. Yoshitoshi’s supernatural images are also renowned, especially for the power of their storytelling. Artists drew from the long tradition of supernatural stories in Japan, which dates back hundreds of years, even into the folklore of prehistory. We look forward to welcoming you to our upcoming exhibit at the Conrad New York Midtown from March 16th through the 17th.

ABOUT THE GALLERY

Established in 1975, Egenolf Gallery specializes in fine Japanese woodblock prints and drawings, including works by the earliest 17th century pioneers of ukiyo-e to the shin hanga masters of the 20th century. We are pleased to offer a highly curated selection of designs in exceptional condition over a broad range of prices. Our focus is providing value to our clients.

Herbert Egenolf began dealing in Japanese prints in 1975 in Duesseldorf, Germany, following an eleven-year residency in Japan. In 1992 he invited Veronica Miller to join him in the business. After working together with Mr. Egenolf for ten years, she became the director of Egenolf Gallery following the untimely passing of Mr. Egenolf in 2002, and now is based near Los Angeles, California. In addition to our schedule of Print Fairs, viewings of prints can be arranged by appointment – contact us by phone or email.

We belong to both the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) and the Ukiyo-e Dealers Association of Japan. Every March we participate in Asia Week, New York as well as regional Print Fairs on the West Coast.
