Japanese Woodblock Prints, New Acquisitions Catalogue

With Asian Art London on display in the capital we thought we would join in and provide you all with a welcome break from the mundane and everyday and invite you to view our latest mini-catalogue of beautiful and fascinating examples of Ukiyo-e printmaking depicting a world of fleeting beauty.

“…Living only for the moment, turning our full attention to the pleasures of the moon, the snow, the cherry blossom s and the maple leaves; singing songs, drinking wine, diverting ourselves in just floating, floating;… refusing to be disheartened, like a gourd floating along with the river current; this is what we call the floating world…”

Asai Ryoi, Ukiyo monogatari.
