July 7 auction explores innovative Japanese woodblock prints

Japanese woodblock prints have a long and storied history that is rightly tangled up in the genre of Japanese art known as ukiyo-e, which flourished between the 17th and 19th centuries. The powerful allure of the best examples still casts a spell, just like they did on the Impressionists, the post-Impressionists, and generations of artists who followed. Their innovative compositions, appealing coloration, and intriguing subject matter continue to draw new collectors.

On July 7, starting at 8 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will host a 95-lot sale of Japanese Woodblock Prints.
