- THE ANNEX GALLERIES
Santa Rosa, CA
+Established in 1971, the Annex Galleries inventory includes works from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries with a focus on American printmaking from 1900 to 1975. Our specialties include color woodcut, modernist prints, abstract expressionist prints of the 1940s and 1950s, WPA, and works created at Atelier 17 in New York and Paris. Through numerous catalogues on California prints created between 1900 and 1950, we have illustrated California’s important niche and artistic contributions to the history of American printmaking. Our broad interests have created our inventory which consists of over 8,000 works on paper, half of which are on this website. Other areas of interest include European, Japanese, and Hispanic prints as well as photography.
- THE ART OF JAPAN
+The Art of Japan’s combined experience of over 75 years of collecting and dealing in Japanese prints places us in the top tier of dealers in Japanese prints and paintings worldwide. The term “Shin-Hanga,” or new print, was originally coined in 1915 by Shosaburo Watanabe; this year we feature very rare and early prints from this early era of Shin Hanga. In addition, we will have a spectacular array of Japanese prints ranging from 1750-1950. Of particular interest are a large group of first state Hiroshige prints from the series “100 Views of Edo,” several very fine Utamaro prints, a collection of Yokohama prints and some really great Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi prints. We have the finest selection of Japanese prints for sale in the US, Europe, and, I would even venture to say, Japan.
