I support at 100% your point of view.
It is normal that dealers or sellers use the internet to get bigger profits - I have no problem with that.
On the other hand, they should know that buyers and amateurs of Japanese prints are spending also a lot of time on the net in search of good quality prints. So they too are pretty well informed about the market and the stocks of the different dealers operating on the net. In other words, they are not completely ignorant!
So please stop this practice by dividing polytychs and in particular these wonderful Osaka polytychs for the sole purpose to sell them as seperate prints and to get bigger profits. I know that it is business as usual but I find it completely unethical and it raises a great mistrust on behalf of the true art lovers and buyers towards the whole market.
