1838 - K. EISEN - Japanese DELUXE shunga - Erotic Flower Petals - from behind
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 22.7 cm x 28 cm. Superb colors and impressions, along with black lacquer, 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. No backing. Please see and judge from photos.
A great Japanese shunga scene of a man raising and embracing the leg of his female lover as he penetrates her from behind, while shunga books lie overturned in front of them.
