Dealer, agent and appraiser
in master drawings and prints, Japanese prints

I began dealing in Old Master drawings and prints in 1975. Since then, my range of interests in the field of the works of art on paper has expanded to include drawings and prints by nineteenth and twentieth century artists, mainly Italian, as well as Japanese woodblock prints. In February 2000 I opened up this web site: a virtual exhibition including drawings and prints from stock and a shop-window for my latest acquisitions. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any information about the works on view here, or should you want to be informed about future acquisitions in your fields of interest.

In the space of a few weeks, the living conditions of all of us have radically changed
due to the sudden and serious threat of Coronavirus.
My hope is that we will be able to overcome this serious crisis involving the whole planet
as soon as possible, and also that this threat will lead us to greater solidarity,
between individuals as between nations.
For now let’s all scrupulously follow the rule of social distancing.
Stay home!
