Session IV: Contemporary Japanese and Ukiyo-e and Shin-hanga Prints with  Allison Tolman and Katherine Martin, at Scholten Gallery, 145 West 58th Street

Join the Appraisers Association for a comprehensive print day where we will venture to several of New York City’s most noteworthy art venues and meet with renowned specialists in the printmaking field. During the program, we will visit Pace Editions and Pace Prints Gallery, Phillips de Pury & Company and Scholten Japanese Art Gallery.

Our first stop will be Pace Editions, a printmaking studio focused on intaglio and relief print processes.  Here, we will meet with Pace Gallery Associate Director, Jeff Bergman, and master printers, who will display an in-depth demonstration of these print processes.  This will serve as an excellent introduction to our next stop, Pace Prints Gallery.
At Pace Prints Gallery we will view an exhibition of new editions by famed photorealist, Chuck Close.  In addition, at the Gallery we will explore various printmaking methods that Close utilizes in his artwork, including screen print, paper pulp and felt hand stamping.  Jeff will also show us Pace Prints editions that span 45 years and nearly every print technique.

After that, we will continue our day at Phillips de Pury & Company, where the Director of Modern Editions, Kelly Troester, will show us the preview of the October 29th Day and Evening Editions Sales. She will walk through the exhibition and talk about the sale highlights, various techniques and the current state of the market

After lunch, we will visit Scholten Japanese Art, where Allison Tolman will speak about contemporary Japanese Ukiyo-e and Shin-hanga (woodblock) prints. A second-generation dealer, Allison grew up in Tokyo, where her parents operate the Tolman Collection, a gallery specializing in works on paper by artists living in Japan. The woodblock tradition is alive and well there and has been joined by other printmaking media such as lithography, etching and silkscreen.  Director of Scholten Japanese Art, Katherine Martin will discuss the market and related connoisseurship issues for Japanese Ukiyo-e and Shin-hanga prints. The purpose of her lecture is to educate non-specialists about the basic criteria for determining if a print is of high quality and to offer pointers on how to spot obvious later copies.
