||Just released, this exhibition catalogue shows 125 prints from the esteemed Robert O. Muller Collection of
"shin hanga" prints exhibited Nov 2004-Jan 2005 in the Smithsonian Museum's Sackler Gallery.
Detailed catalogue of 125 prints; plus essays by James Ulak, Joan Mirviss and Amy Newland.
||Two introductory essays (31 pages) outline the life of Robert O. Muller (1911-2003), who has become known as
the consummate collector, connoisseur, and dealer of twentieth-century Japanese "shin-hanga" prints. Upon Bob's
death in late 2003, some 4,500 of his finest prints were then bequeathed to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington,
D.C. Having been a lifetime dealer of Japanese prints, several 1,000 additional prints have simultaneously come into
the worldwide marketplace. Beautifully illustrated with 129 color plates--a wonderful overview of the "Robert O. Muller
Collection" of prints.
||This catalogue is unquestionably one of the finest references available covering the "shin-hanga"
genre of Japanese prints. Choosen for this first exhibition of "Muller Collection" prints were a broad-based
selection of pristine, and in some cases seldom-seen prints. Detailed notes accompany each print, along with complete
biographical information for each artist represented. Extensive Glossary.
