1860 UTAGAWA Surimono Shunga Japanese woodblock print Dragon Tattoo
Authentic Edo period original, c.1860, Japanese surimono shunga erotic art woodblock picture by an artist of the UTAGAWA School. Shunga picture measures approximately 12.5 cm x 9.1 cm. Very good colors and impressions. Condition is very good with some light wear and soiling; partial hanko stamps showing near top and left edges. No backing, aside from bit remnants of album backing on the corners only. Wonderful embossing on this surimono shunga piece! Please see and judge from photos.
Great Japanese erotic art scene here of a ruffian covered in tattoos, most notably a cool dragon one from head-to-toe with the dragon's head clearly visible along his right shoulder. A very nice surimono shunga piece, as surimono (privately commissioned woodblock prints) tend to be.
