More About this Item


Description

Shunga - Shunga is a Japanese term for erotic pictures. Some scholars believe that the first shunga were inspired by Chinese medical manuals. Shunga prints grew in popularity in the early 18th century and the production of shunga peaked in the golden age of the print period in the late 19th century. Many ukiyo-e artists did shunga in addition to their normal specialties. The works sold well and, often at higher prices than the normal genre. So, artists had an incentive to delve into the realm of shunga. Often of very high quality and with great sensitivity to the subject, the best artists produced shunga of remarkable beauty. Shunga were rarely signed as collectors in the field know. Some of the noted artists in the field were; Moronobu, Hokusai, Shigenobu and the great Utamaro. IMAGE SIZE 10" x 7 1/8"Comments - A lovely comic shunga print depicting the mischievious voyeur Mane'emon. Here he sits on the window sill and enjoys a drink with a similarly sized lady while a pair of couples plays games. This print served as the frontispiece for a volume featuring Mane'emon as a voyeur.
