Utamaro - Shunga - Ehon Komachibiki - from behind - 1802


Authentic & Original Edo Period Japanese erotic art gem!   It's an antique 1802, Japanese shunga erotic art woodblock print picture by Kitagawa UTAMARO (1753-1806).  From his famous series, Ehon komachibiki.  The shunga picture measures approximately 24.5 cm x 38 cm.  Good colors and very good impressions.  Decent+ condition for its age with some wear and soiling, stains, centre fold, and creases, few tiny faint holes.  No backing.  Please refer to photos.   


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!
