Add to wishlist

“A famous comic love scene between a wet nurse and an old monk who is paying a visit to her house; the nurse, entwined with him at the climactic moment, is twisting his nose, while the monk is trying to tear her hand away and carry on making love.”

The 'Genji of the East (Azuma Genji)' -series belongs to the best shungawork Kunisada designed and were probably commisioned by a wealthy merchant. One feels that these are brief and very intense love scenes, judging from the character's facial expressions and the muscle tension in their bodies.
