1900 - Tomioka Eisen - Shunga Woodblock Print - Mosquito Net
Authentic & original Meiji period c.1900, Japanese shunga erotic art woodblock print picture by Tomioka Eisen (1864-1905). Measures approximately 14.8 cm x 20.8 cm. Fantastic colors and impressions! Great use of the deluxe printing technique referred to as urushi-e (black lacquer) to exemplify the hairlines, thus adding lustre to their beautiful and distinctive sheen. Bokashi shading (tonal gradation) also applied to the mosquito netting. Condition is great with minimal wear, if any. No backing. Please see and judge from photos.
A woman holds a teapot for her thirsty male lover underneath her. In their proximity lie a number of crumpled up papers, suggesting their lengthy and arduous love-making bout. Truly an exemplary piece of shunga artwork by one of the Meiji Period greats - Tomioka Eisen!
