You want to know the artist of your Japanese print? And next, you want to know its "value", of course. Please read to the end of this text. We tell you how to get your questions answered.
We are a small commercial family business and neither have the human nor financial resources to maintain free "who is the artist?" and "what is the value?" and "what more can you tell me" services. We are asking for your understanding that we do not answer this type of emails .
Go to Ukiyo-e.org. The owner of the web site, John Resig, developed a spectacular tool to identify Japanese prints by comparing an uploaded image against a huge database of collected images including the arteline archive.
Once you know the artist and maybe a title of your print, please feel free to use artelino's archive of ca 40,000 sold Japanese prints with actual prices to research the "value" of your print. This service is for free. In order to see prices you must be registered.
Another good source for your research in Japanese prints is the JAODB (Japanese Art Open Database) project by Ross Walker. JAODB is a database of Japanese prints collected and maintained manually by Mr. Ross Walker. Also the JAODB contains a larger number of prints coming from the artelino archive. This database is smaller in volume compared to ukiyo-e.org. The advantage is the high level of quality due to the expertise and the manual maintainance by Ross Walker.
