Welcome to the Gilbert Luber Collection. Gilbert, a CPA, and wife Shirley, a commercial artist, made their first visit to Japan to celebrate their 25th anniversary. They quickly fell in love with Japanese prints, both the antique as well as the contemporary. Once home in Philadelphia, Gilbert began an in-depth study of Japanese prints, and they returned the following year to make more purchases… and the next year, and the next year… for 20 years thereafter… and that’s how it all began! Originally opened as a gallery to the public, the Gilbert Luber Gallery was the first gallery in Philadelphia to handle the works of Japanese artists — the old as well as the contemporary. We hope that you will enjoy visiting the website and seeing just a small portion of the prints from the Gilbert Luber Collection.
