“One of the best designs from one of Kunisada’s most well-known shunga series !”

...Kunisada also used this in a page of his ' Viewing Forms in the Four Seasons (Shiki no sugatami)', where the viewer sees a woman's head (and mind) still in bed with her rightful partner, while her genitals -- divided by the netting -- are outside (illus. 49). Although she is aware of what she does, the status of her sexual act, sectioned off from her head, seems dreamlike, for mental and bodily zones do not match. Pictorially, she is doing nothing wrong". (Timon Screech)
