1838 - K. EISEN - Japanese DELUXE shunga - Erotic Flower Petals - Exposed thigh
Authentic Edo period original, c.1838, Japanese 'DELUXE' shunga erotic art woodblock by Keisai EISEN (1790-1848). From the shunga series, Shunshoku hana no shizuku (Erotic Drops of Flower Petals). Shunga picture measures 27.7 cm x 15.5 cm. Superb colors and impressions, along with black lacquer, gold mica (metallic pigments), and gauffrage. Gorgeous, rich colors and wonderful metallic sheen throughout! This is perhaps the nicest, most beautiful shunga series of any kind I have ever come across from the Edo Period. Personally, I've never had a series nearly 200 years old in such extraordinary shape! They look as is they could have been made just yesterday; that's how beautiful these erotic woodblock prints are! I think you'll be hard to come by a shunga series this old - by any artist! - in finer condition than this! Condition is very good with some light wear and soiling near bottom. No backing. Please see and judge from photos.
A great Japanese shunga scene of a beauty doing her toiletries with her legs open, exposing her thigh.
