1900 - Keishu - Shunga - Climax

SKU: ano2227

Authentic Meiji period, c.1900 original Japanese erotic art shunga woodblock print picture by Takeuchi Keishu (1861-1942).  Shunga picture measures 18.7 cm x 12.3 cm.  Great colors and impressions!  In addition, the elaborate & deluxe printing technique, bokashi shading, is also used here to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the Japanese erotic artwork.  Superb condition with minimal wear!  No backing.  Please refer to photos.  


A great shunga woodblock print picture of a couple in the midst of climaxing.  The moment of the woman's intense orgasm is acutely defined in the meticulously detailed artwork:  Her legs shoot out, even toes curled, while her right hand clasps tightly on the back of her male lover.


Takeuchi Keishu may not get as much recognition as his brethren counterparts of the Meiji Period, Tomioka Eisen and Ikeda Terukata, but of course, all three artists are considered the 'Big Three' in regards to Meiji Period shunga.  Yet, Eisen and Terukata tend to get most of the accolades.  Terukata is definitely a great artist and one of my personal favorites from that period, but Keishu's commissioned and thus, immaculate deluxe shunga series, Hazakura (Leaves of the Cherry Blossom), rivals any and all shunga artwork put forth during Japan's imperialistic era - no matter the other artist!  Click here to see some of the fantastic shunga artwork from the Hazakura series.
