Scholten Japanese Art | New York City

Scholten is a private gallery specializing in Japanese woodblock prints and paintings. We offer ukiyo-e from the 18th to 20th centuries, including shin hanga, sosaku hanga, and Japanese-style woodblock prints produced by Western artists. Located in a spacious suite in the old Meurice Hotel, just steps from Central Park South, we enjoy meeting with visitors one on one in order to best learn about your interests and share the collection with you.


For this year's IFPDA Print Fair, in addition to exhibiting a classic selection of Japanese woodblock prints by Edo Period masters such as Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) and Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), we are delighted to announce that for the first time Scottish printmaker Paul Binnie (b. 1967) will be attending the fair and demonstrating both woodblock carving and printing on the gallery’s booth.


Scholten has had a long-term connection with Binnie, who is internationally known as one of the leading exponents of traditional style printmaking, and his work can be found in many important collections worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum in New York City and the Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of Asian Art in Washington D.C.


Binnie trained in woodblock printing in Tokyo for almost six years from 1993, and the gallery just celebrated his thirtieth year of printmaking with a highly successful solo exhibition in 2023. He will be present at the gallery stand during the four days of the fair and will demonstrate both carving and printing on alternate days. A wide selection of the artist’s work will be available to view, including some rare and highly sought-after designs, as well as new works and a preview of upcoming print projects
