Description

“A couple portrayed in the “doggy-style” position with the man resting his head on the back of his lover.”

Look for the magnificent printing details such as the use of ‘bokashi’-shading and the highly detailed carving of the individual hair-lines.

Ukiyo-e expert dr. Richard Lane comments the following on the original Hokusai design in Lovemaking at New Year’s (aka The Adonis Plant):

“A nude couple is here depicted coupling in “dog fashion,” delighted to find themselves all alone, as the master has gone out for the evening, leaving his wife free to dally at leisure with her somehow the print is lacking in “color” compared to the rest of the series: a peril inherent in the color print when it turns to nude figures.

A rather similar scene appears in Hokusai’s shunga book Kinoe no komatsu, featuring, as usual, a more loose composition, with our attention directed to the mosquito-net and other details, thus detracting from the erotic effect. The intensity of the scene is also reminiscent of the masterpiece of Enmusubi Izumo no sugi...
