Description

“Playful lovers reading an illustrated book at a desk. Their shy sensuality is almost palpable.”

The circular frame of the window reminds of Hiroshige’s View From Massaki of Suijin Shrine.

The paintings in this series portray the sensual encounters of young males sporting the then fashionable back-of-head (front-shaved) queue hairstyle and female lover making love on various locations, with meticulously engineered windows and dramatic moon gates that allow compelling views.

This unique piece was part of the acclaimed Ferdinand Bertholet collection.

Superb condition. The endearing poetic sensuality of the paintings is not captured in the photographs compared to the real life experience!
