Edo Gallery is a proud sponsor of the Japanese Art Society of America. For the upcomming journal Impressions vol.43 part II, we chose to use this stunning watercolor of an owl painted by Koson. Coincidentally, Impressions vol 43. part II will feature an article about the artist Koson himself. Small world. ~Edo Gallery

About the gallery


Edo Gallery is a small family-owned and operated small business focused on continuing a long, rich tradition of Japanese woodblock print dealers. We have dedicated ourselves to delivering the highest quality, reasonably priced Japanese prints to the discerning collector. We are members of the Japanese print dealers association, & JASA (Japanese Art Society of America).

What makes Edo Gallery unique?

Our leading expert, Geoffrey Oliver, has devoted his life to collecting and researching Japanese prints. As a collector, first and foremost, each print we offer has been carefully selected with an experienced eye for nuance and nose for obscure facts which color every print's rich history.


It is essential to keep in mind that many of these works of art have survived for hundreds of years; through various owners & collections, surviving both environmental and man-made catastrophes, as well as natural deterioration from exposure to the sun, climate, and, yes, bookworms. 


A woodblock print's provenance can be a significant determinating factor of its value. Sometimes more important than its condition. A print's provenance traced back to a famous collector or collection such as Monet, Van Gogh, and Frank Loyd Wright, to name a few, is going to command a higher price on the market.

What sets Edo Gallery apart?

We have a team of world-class conservationists trained in the art of traditional Japanese paper restoration. By using only natural techniques, to ultimately preserve the artists' original intentions and styling of the printmakers, the result is only found in conservation programs run by a handful of major art institutions. Japanese paper and art conservation is an esoteric practice maintained by a handful of skilled practitioners worldwide.


In closing, the team at Edo Gallery would like to thank all of the great institutions, galleries, dealers, and collectors that have taken this journey with us.
