‘Fall in love with woodblock prints…’ Frank Lloyd Wright was among the first to be smitten by the beauty of Japanese Woodblock prints…he said “it is no secret that the prints choose whom they love and there is then no salvation but surrender.” Specializing in Japanese woodblock prints, we sell prints from c1850-1940s, including American and French artists such as Helen Hyde, Bertha Lum, and Paul Jacoulet.
