Jeffrey Hendricks was born into a family of art dealers, appraisers, and collectors. While growing up in Japan from 1965- 1970, Jeffrey's parents introduced European graphics such as those by Rembrandt, Durer, and Picasso to the Japanese culture at the International House in Tokyo, Japan. Upon the family move to Bethesda, Maryland in 1970, Jeffrey's parents opened the Hendricks Art Collection, a foundational gallery for the Japanese Print Movement. Jeffrey was able to observe the growth and development of the leading Japanese artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Jeffrey Hendricks attended Dartmouth College for a number of years between 1982 and 1988 where he studied the arts with a major in film production. Jeffrey transferred his credits to New York University Tisch School of the Arts, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1991.
In the 1990s, Jeffrey worked for the Kappy Hendricks Gallery which specialized in selling French Impressionist School oil paintings by artists such as Monet, Pisarro, and Mary Cassatt to Japanese collectors. Jeffrey researched the artworks to establish authenticity, provenance and other pertinent information at the Frick Art Library in Manhattan.
Jeffrey Hendricks gained further experience in the art world and built the Japanese print market by opening gallery spaces in New Orleans, Houston, and Philadelphia between 1999 and 2005.
Jeffrey and Kappy Hendricks worked closely together in Bethesda, Maryland, Philadelphia, and New York City from 2003 through 2016 on art sales, exhibitions, and appraisals. Jeffrey also co- authored Tadashi Nakayama- His Life and Work, Second Edition, an important biography and catalogue raisonne for one of Japan's leading printmakers of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
Jeffrey Hendricks continues to build Japanese print collections throughout the country through marketing on his website, HendricksArtCollection.com, his Instagram account, HendricksArtGallery@Instagram.com, and by conducting appraisals in person or by photograph.
