Utamaro - Shunga - Ehon Komachibiki - Byōbu - 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 woodblock print picture measures approximately 24.5 cm x 38 cm. Good colors and very good impressions. Decent+/good condition for its age with some wear and soiling, small holes & wormage, centre fold, and creases. 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 Japanese erotic art scene, two lovers are engaged in the act while some clothing hangs over a standing screen (byōbu). Another exemplary Utamaro work of art from this highly-sought-after series!
