Very good condition, see description

On washi paper.

Woodcut attributed to the Utagawa (Toyoharu 歌川派) school, an important school for the production of erotic prints (shunga) in the Edo era.
Hiroshige, Kunisada, Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi were well-known Utagawa school students.

The word "shunga" means "spring print". The word "spring" is a Japanese euphemism for "making love".
Here the man is taking a woman from behind as she is reading... an erotic scroll?

no signature because of censorship

Measurements: 20 cm x 15 cm, two pages glued together
Condition: very good
Folding lines, very beautiful colours and details, fine finish
Origin: Japan, around 1850, Meiji era.


Shipped with a tracking code.
