Original woodblock print, Shunga (5) - Original woodblock 5 erotic prints - First half 20th century
Shunga (春画) is a Japanese term for erotic art. Most shunga are a type of ukiyo-e, usually executed in woodblock print format.
While rare, there are extant erotic painted handscrolls which predate the Ukiyo-e movement.
Translated literally, the Japanese word shunga means picture of spring; "spring" is a common euphemism for sex.
The ukiyo-e movement as a whole sought to express an idealisation of contemporary urban life and appeal to the new chōnin class.
Following the aesthetics of everyday life, Edo period shunga varied widely in its depictions of sexuality.
As a subset of ukiyo-e it was enjoyed by all social groups in the Edo period, despite being out of favour with the shogunate.
Almost all ukiyo-e artists made shunga at some point in their careers.

Received my item very carefully packaged, and was delivered only a few days after the auction was closed. Very happy with it!
Excellent. My order from Japan arrived today. It was well protected and no damage during transit.
Verkoper stuurde berichten dat het object eerst zoek was en daarna al eerder verkocht met advies zelf terugbetaling te vorderen. Reageerde niet op mijn reacties. Na 24 dagen nog geen terugbetaling.
very good condition, fast delivery. good rare book. many thanks.
my complaint is there was no authenticity information and the packing was below par.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.De gekochte afbeelding verkeerde in goede staat, was redelijk verpakt: het belangrijkste. Maar dat ik ook nog € 29,60 douanekosten moest bijbetalen, wist ik niet. Zo wordt het wel wat duur. Pas op.
Lot never arrived after payment was made, seller is not responding to communication.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Prodotto perfetto come indicato. Unico problema ho dovuto pagare una mora doganale (16€) perché il prodotto probabilmente non era stato indicato con il suo valore corretto.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Prodotto arrivato rapidamente e pienamente rispondente alle attese.
Purtroppo l’applicazione di oneri doganali lo rende molto più costoso e scoraggia nuovi acquisti da paesi extra UE.
Print arrived in good time as described
The print was packaged very poorly - only in a hard plastic pocket and soft envelope. It was pure luck that the print arrived unbent and not damaged.
