About Us

Jacques Hnizdovsky Self-Portrait

Direct from the Hnizdovsky Trust to Collectors

The Hnizdovsky Gallery™, owned by the Hnizdovsky Trust is your direct source for all of Jacques Hnizdovsky's artwork. We have been helping collectors, libraries and museums build their collections of Hnizdovsky artwork for over 65 years.

All prints shown on this website are original limited edition woodcuts, linocuts and etchings, all hand printed, signed and numbered by Jacques Hnizdovsky. All are original prints, not reproductions of prints, and have been in our continuous possession since their creation date. Authenticity and direct provenance are guaranteed.

Many prints shown in our online gallery are extremely rare. All are stored under 24-hour archival care (strict temperature and humidity control). Quality, therefore is excellent. Please note that the photographs shown on our website are greatly down-sampled and have had the signature removed for security reasons, but all prints are signed and numbered, or marked AP (artist’s proof) or TP (trial proof). Certain APs and normally all TPs are un-numbered, but this in no way decreases their value, on the contrary. Trial Proofs are especially sought out by connoisseur collectors, since it shows the artist's process. There are minor defects in Trial Proofs, since the woodblock has still not reached its final phase, but this is precisely the reason certain collectors choose them.

Searching the Hnizdovsky Gallery™ 
You may search the Hnizdovsky Gallery™ by keywords such as woodcut, linocut, etching, the year the print was created, the number of the print in the book Jacques Hnizdovsky Woodcuts & Etchings, or by subject: cats, sheep, shells, flowers, trees, food, etc.. You may view prints by decade, by searching for 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s or 80s. You may also search for horizontal, vertical or square prints, if your space dictates a particular format.

Ordering and Shipping 
We accept all major credit cards. Shipments are shipped promptly the next day after you place your order. In case of inclement weather or during our specials, please allow an extra day for us to ship. Once your order is on its way, you will receive full tracking information via email. Prints normally arrive within two business days.

We take extra precautions to protect your artwork during shipment. All prints are either covered in cellophane, if shipped in a box, or are placed into a heavyweight shipping tube, which is placed into an outer box. This protects your artwork in transit from humidity and temperature fluctuations.

International collectors traveling to the US, we can ship prints directly to your hotel or residence in the US. We include all necessary documents you may need for Customs clearance when returning to your home country. Overseas shipping is available by prior arrangement only.

Matting and Framing Guidelines 
Once you receive your artwork, we recommend consulting the Library of Congress website for archival matting and framing guidelines. The paper Jacques Hnizdovsky printed on (washi) has extreme longevity, but as with all works of art, proper handling and framing is highly recommended. All materials used in matting and framing should be archival and acid-free. Please keep your artwork away from direct sunlight and from atmospheric pollutants such as tobacco smoke or wood smoke. 

Please be sure to keep your shipping insert and copies of your email confirmation as proof of provenance. Some collectors even keep the shipping label. This proves that you purchased the artwork directly from the Hnizdovsky Trust. Direct provenance greatly increases the value of your artwork.
