Japanese Prints from 1750-1950

March 15 – 17, 2024
The Mark Hotel, 25 East 77th Street, Suite 215

For this year’s Asia Week New York, we will be presenting Japanese Prints, 1750-1950, featuring the Courtesan of the Northern Quarter, one of five known woodblock prints in Kitagawa Utamaro’s series: “A Guide to Women’s Contemporary Style.” This rare illustration is one in a series of large close-up prints showing the styles of different women. We look forward to displaying these Japanese prints in the traditional manner in folders in a comfortable and quiet setting at The Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.



The Art of Japan’s Combined Experience of over 75 years of collecting and dealing in Japanese prints places us among the top tier of dealers in Japanese prints and paintings worldwide. If you plan to come to the Seattle area and would like to view the artworks, please contact us for an appointment. If you would like to see the prints on exhibition, we exhibit in New York during Print Week in the Fall. In the Winter we are at the Portland Fine Print Fair at the Portland Art Museum, and in the Spring, we are in New York again to exhibit during Asia Week.
