For our 15th season of Asia Week New York, The Art of Japan, which is based in Medina, Washington, will return to New York with Japanese Prints, 1750-1950. On view will be a complete set of Utamaro’s famous 12 Hours in the Yoshiwara, in addition to other major works by Hiroshige, Eishi, Kiyochika and others. As in past years, the owners and collectors Richard Waldman and Doug Frazer will be located at the Mark Hotel. Both men bring decades of experience, a wealth of knowledge, and an abundance of enthusiasm to the field, as well as exceptional examples of Japanese woodblock prints. They look forward to displaying these Japanese prints in the traditional manner in folders in a comfortable and quiet setting.
