"A nice large shunga painting from the very early period (17th century) with a with a young aristocratic woman (look at the shaved eyebrows) mounting her older lover.”
Painted in a discerning figurative style with expert control. The artist paid a lot of attention to the facial expressions (look for the man's teeth!), the private areas and the individual hair-lines, which underlines his great craftsmanship. The 'Chinese white' colorant (gofun) derived from ground oyster shell, has been applied to delineate the female body.
Original Japanese color painting. Shunga (Erotic picture).
