The Japanese woodblock print has held the West under its spell for over a century and a half. Since Commodore Perry returned to the United States bearing the riches of Japanese culture Western tastes and sensibilities have never been the same. Among the treasures that Perry brought back were ukiyo-e prints that would forever change the course of Western art. One by one the great painters of the day - Manet, Degas, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Monet, Cassatt and Whistler all succumbed to the seductive beauty of Japanese prints, collecting and assimilating the striking compositions, colors and styles into their own work. By the early 20th century, European connoisseurs of art amassed legendary collections and, later, American art lovers began assembling the portfolios that made the United States the world's leading center for the collection of Japanese art.
Few art forms available today have integrity and lasting value. Ronin Gallery selects each work for its beauty and quality. Every piece has an integrity of design and craftsmanship; a spirit that gives them an enduring value that can be passed through generations. For over 38 years we have been offering fine and important works of Japanese Art. If you would like an introduction to collecting, please stop by our Madison Avenue gallery or visit our website.
