Utamaro - Original or Reproduction?
What exactly is a Japanese woodblock reproduction? Does a reproduction have any value? When does it make sense to buy a reproduction, and when not? There is a lot of intentionally misleading descriptions of ukiyo-e reproductions out on the internet using flowery, tricky wording. Learn for yourself how you can recognize if a print by Japanese ukiyo-e master Kitagawa Utamaro is an original or a reproduction.

What are Heisei Editions?
The word 'Heisei edition' has become a synonym for late, posthumous printings of Japanese shin hanga prints made from the original blocks after 1989, the beginning of the Japanese Heisei period. But what precisely are they? How can you recognize a Heisei edition? And are Heisei editions bad? Read my new article.

New: Archive Research - Trial Version
We have created a trial version for research in our archive. You can search by artist and title of Japanese prints. Results are limited to 12 items and functionality is pretty limited. But no account and no login required. The full version archive research for over 50,000 Japanese prints with large images, full descriptions and actual auction results is reserved for Artelino clients with an active purchase history.

Videos - Hand Selected
Enjoy a selection of videos on our web site. It is a slightly crazy mix of Japan and ukiyo-e related videos plus classical music, pop classic, good old rockn'roll, pop music from the 60s and 70s and Bavarian folk music. All videos have just one common bond. I like them - with one exception: the ones artelino made about 10 years ago. They are technically outdated and - well, I think they could be done better today..

A Bid Cannot be Retracted.
Different from other online auctions with Japanese prints we do not sell own inventory. The prints offered by us come from real consignments and we pay the seller for sold pieces on short term. Therefore, and for the protection of our serious bidders, you cannot retract a bid in an Artelino auction. Read our item descriptions well, and if you are in doubt about a print or if your financial situation does not allow it, please REFRAIN from bidding.

Bidders who nevertheless request that we retract a bid, are excluded from our auctions - forever.

We Keep Our Auctions Clean.
Artelino auctions are no hoax event. We want to offer you 100% clean auctions without guys who outbid serious bidders and at the end can just cancel the order or retract a bid or cannot pay and get away with it. Before we let a new person bid in our auctions we personally vet the registration data carefully. First-time bidders must supply a credit card which is tested by us. Bidders who violate our terms and conditions or misbehave in any way are immediately excluded from our auctions - forever. And we really mean it. Since our foundation in 2001 we have excluded overall circa 150 persons from our auctions. Please read our terms and conditions for typical exclusion reasons.

Graham Scholes
Canadian artist Graham Scholes has published a book titled "Let There Be Light". It is a collection of nicely illustrated and well explained woodblock prints created by the artist. Graham Scholes is a passionate printmaker using the Japanese moku-hanga technique of creating all-handmade woodblock prints the "old" way. The artist has now finished the series of Canadian lighthouses. I like especially the reduction woodblock prints that Graham has recently created. Take a look at his homepage and beautiful woodblock prints in small editions.
