Scholten Japanese Art will mark its 15th year in New York with a special presentation, 2015: 20th Century Japanese Prints & Paintings, the 15th Anniversary Exhibition.

The exhibition will focus on one of Scholten’s primary interests: exploring the intertwining development of Japanese woodblock prints from the early to mid-20th century by artists who designed shin-hanga (lit. “new prints”) and sosaku-hanga (lit. “creative prints”). This theme is particularly fortuitous this year, which is also considered to be the 100th anniversary of the birth of shin-hanga.

The exhibition will feature approximately 60 woodblock prints and two paintings. An online exhibition will be posted in advance of the opening at www.scholten-japanese-art.com

Scholten Japanese Art is open Monday through Friday, and some Saturdays, 11am – 5pm, by appointment. To schedule an appointment please call (212) 585-0474.

For the duration of the first segment of the exhibition, September 10 – 18, the gallery will have general open hours (no appointment needed), 11 am to 5 pm; and thereafter by appointment through October 30th.
