What you'll do

You can fulfill your dreams buying an authentic Ukiyoe (more than 150 years old wood print) buy a beautiful reproduction and everyone will praise your sensibility. We do not waste time. First, having a coffee, I will give you the basic notions to know the authors, the dates, the editors, the techniques and the topics. In 15 minutes you will know how to distinguish an authentic one from an imitation or a cheap copy. We have a lunch brake 30-40min. At a very economic Japanese soba nudels we relax discussing the first impression. Depending on what you are looking for, we will design an itinerary or another. -I want just one gift a sheet of the most commercial images -posts of this topic -books of ukiyoe -a sheet but with the explanations in English -a drawing of an ancient ukiyoe. but made in the present with the same technique of wood engraving with perfect colors -Authentic and quality at an affordable price -a piece of museum something that nobody has or very rare to get Once we are done, you will be an expert and pieces of millions of yen and hundreds of years will have passed through your hands. I right about Ukiyoe in dise site https://www.catawiki.es/seller/lots But nothing like the value of your experience.
