Japanese landscapes and society captured in woodblock prints offered Aug. 28

NEW YORK – Japanese woodblock prints are beloved for their sensitive portrayals of nature, temples, and polite society of times past. However they also can embody drama in the form of mythical beasts, warfare, and one-on-one sword battles. Some who collect Japanese woodblock prints favor particular artists, while others take a more comprehensive approach. Either type of collector will find a treasure in Jasper52’s Wednesday, August 28 specialty auction, with a lineup of artists that includes Hirano Hakuho, Kawase Hasui, Kuniyoshi Utagawa and many other revered names.
