This print reflects the strong influence of Japanese art in late 19th-century Paris. Beginning in 1889, Henri Rivière was instrumental in introducing into French art the techniques of Japanese color woodcuts. In complex, labor-intensive procedures, he cut the woodblocks, mixed the water-based inks, applied them by hand, and printed each impression without a press.

COMING SOON—"Modern Japanese Portraits”
The 1940s and 1950s were a pivotal time for sōsaku hanga, the "creative prints” movement in Japan. Artists turned to traditional woodblock printing to give full expression to their often somber images. Some of the most haunting portraits produced in Japan were created in this era, and they speak to the effort these artists made to imbue their subjects with a depth and psychological nuance entirely new to the medium.

Just back from the framers, "Comedy" by Hosoya Masayuki.
Nice article on Japanese prints.
Modern and contemporary artists prove that when it comes to printmaking, there is no place in the world quite like Japan.
A friend , Rima Kamal, loved our Gres Keramis pictures so much she asked to do an oil painting of some of them. Here is the preliminary sketch. Cheers
So excited to be returning to Chicago this May.
Chicago Antiques Art & Design Show is excited to welcome Exhibitor @TOJ Gallery of Annapolis MD. The Show & Sale returns May 17th - 19th, 2018 to the Chicago Merchandise Mart. For more information, please visit: http://chicagoantiquesartdesign.com
When we visited Japan this past fall we were fortunate enough to view the work of an artist I was not familiar with. It was love at first sight. Hosoya Masayuki's work feels both Japanese and western at the same time. Here is the first etching back from the framers and now available at www.tojgallery.com and soon on InCollect. Its titled "A Slight Fever". Enjoy.
I’ve been playing around with our inventory creating groupings. I hope you like them.

I was reading about Japanese crafts today and it brought to mind this unique Charles Catteau vase for Boch Freres we have. The vase is so graceful and minimal yet you still see art deco in it's execution. Hope you like it. It's available on our website.
