Whether a major exhibition is staged or a truly comprehensive book is published about a single artist, the number of art observers desiring the work of that artist is likely to increase.
The Catalogue Raisonne of Tsuchiya Koitsu was published December 2008. Ross Walker and Toshikazu Doi are to be commended as this book is far and away one of the most detailed and thorough explorations of an artist’s work. They took the trouble to present visuals of later printings as well as the initial strikes, clarifying the difference in their appearance, which is linked to a difference in value.
A two-volume set will be released in April 2009 chronicling the progression of Gene Kloss’s prints. The previous raisonne did not provide photographs of each print this fine graphic artist made. Its arrival will trigger additional interest and correspondingly, dealers may be prepared to ask more for their Gene Kloss prints at that time. Why wait to purchase her work? Find an image you like and start making payments on it now. SavvyCollector.com is fortunate to have several consigned to us, all in mint condition and all advantageously priced.
