“A couple is making love in the laundry room.”

“(Michiyuki) koi no futusao” is stylistically similar to Utamaro’s earlier (after 1801) oban series of the same subject entitled Manipulations of Love with Musical Accompaniment (Ongyoku koi no ayatsuri).
The subject of this, and the following work, is based on dramatized tales (yet based on true stories) of ´fated lovers´ who commit double ´love´ suicide. The stories evolved into a line of dramas for Bunraku and Kabuki theatre called shinju mono (double–suicide plays).

Antique Japanese color woodblock. Shunga (Erotic print).
