Not sure if this fits the bill, but our very own Gen. Luci does some Japanese inspired prints.
Ha, I had thought of getting her one of Lucis prints(they’re my go-to for last minute gifts lol).
Was thinking more along the lines of a piece of netsuke or inro etc.
She moves often so trinkets are probably better than stuff to hang on the wall.
Every day is a school day, thanks for that, just had to look up netsuke and inro.
Certainly worth further investigation on my part.
Love Lucis prints, got a couple, may need a couple more though.
easily gotta be Japan House
Ta, will have a look
Website is terrible, but the Israel Goldman Collection is stupendous. The exhibition of Kyōsai last year was fabulous. https://www.israelgoldman.com/
More pop culture might be a chirashi: https://posteritati.com/poster-country/japan
Rutherston has a fine collection of netsuke for sale. https://rutherston.com/japanese-art-for-sale/netsuke/

Clever link which enables you to see the exhibition in minute detail
That is an incredible piece of software/system.
Thanks for the link, hours of exploring on there!
You're welcome and never knew this type of thing excisted - I was reading an article about the actual exhibition in Amsterdam https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2023/feb/07/biggest-ever-vermeer-show-milkmaid-amsterdam-rijksmuseum#comments
And someone in the comments posted the link.
I had a quick peek at
this morning. Lots of great stuff. The art work on display by Shepard Fairey outstanding.
Not sure if this is the right place to ask but couldn’t find a more relevant thread..
A friend is moving back to The Netherlands at the end of March so looking to get her a leaving gift.
She curates Japanese textiles and other artefacts so would really like to get her a small Japanese antique or print etc.
Any recommendations for a good source for such things?
