“Veiled by a diaphanous mosquito net, a man takes advantage of the young women's fear of heavy thunder.”

p.179 (Ill.66c) in Japanese Erotic Fantasies - Sexual Imagery of the Edo Period by C. Uhlenbeck and M. Winkel

The preface in this deluxe book dates it in to the 'Year of the Tiger' (1830). The eminent shunga authority Hayashi Yoshikazu attributed the work to Shigenobu based on the assumption that the signature 'Ikkasai Sukinobu', which appears on one of the plates, is a pseudonym of the artist. 

Antique Japanese color woodblock. Shunga (Erotic print).
