Add to wishlist

"A nice large shunga painting from the very early period (17th century) with a copulating aristocratic couple.”

Painted in a wonderful figurative style with expert control. The artist paid a lot of attention to the facial expressions and the individual hair-lines and genitals, 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).

A rare ancient shunga treasure!
