This weekend I got up close & personal with a variety of beautiful works on paper at the San Francisco Fine Print Fair at Fort Mason. The dealers come from all over the country & offer prints from Europe, Japan & America by artists old & new. The folks from the Verne Collection in Ohio do a great job providing each of their pieces with a story. I enjoyed being able to browse through scores of images without worrying about reading the labels first to make sure I knew what I was looking at. Despite the value & fragility of their merchandise, the dealers seemed very laid-back. Everything is clearly priced, & you can go home with a Rembrandt etching for a modest 5 figures.
