Jan Johnson Old Master and Modern Prints

Chambly, QC, Canada

Jan Johnson is celebrating 40 years in her own print business this year, 50 years of involvement with prints. Our stock covers European Masters from 1570 to 1940, as well as early 20th Century Canadian painter-etchers and woodcutters. We have wide-ranging interests, but look always for particularly fine impressions, be they by major artists or little-known engravers. This eclecticism allows us to offer many works at entry-level prices, as well as museum pieces.
