This is truly a rare erotic art piece and a very difficult shunga series to procure under any circumstances. More often than not, this is the type of classical Japanese erotic art you may come across in a museum exhibition, but never have the slightest opportunity to purchase. This is now your opportunity to own a rare, original shunga work of art by one of the most revered & celebrated masters of Japanese ukiyo-e bijin-ga & shunga, Kitagawa Utamaro.
In this erotic art scene, a female from the shogun household adorning a paper headdress (tsuno kakushi) is being taken from behind by her male lover. Another exemplary Utamaro work of art from this highly-sought-after series!
