Item No.: P2991


Add to wishlist

“The image features a courtesan entertaining a client.”

While she is sitting on his lap he is tenderly kissing her on the cheek. The round cartouche in the above left corner featuring flowers is a particular seasonal reference.

A fine example of Katsushika Oi’s artistry combining some her father’s (Hokusai) favorite details such as the crumpled undergarment but clearly adding her own distinguishing style to the genre.”

Erotic designs by Oi are a rarity !

Original antique Japanese color woodblock print. Shunga (Erotic picture).
