Description: 100% genuine & authentic Japanese woodblock print shunga picture by Hokusai from c.1822.  Very good colors and impressions, as well as some gold mica (metallic pigments) and gauffrage.  Condition is good with some wear and soiling, couple small repairs with backing at bottom corners.  Please see and judge from photos.

A very rare and striking original Hokusai  shunga picture from one of his best series - and my personal favorite - Kurawa no tanoshimi.  In this scene, unbeknownst to a cheating couple is the jealous knife-wielding male partner dangerously approaching, likely making this fatal encounter their last liaison.

 

It's virtually impossible to come across original Hokusai Edo Period artwork nowadays due to his popularity exploding worldwide over the past several years - especially shunga art!  Don't miss out on the opportunity to acquire a shunga work of art by arguably the greatest woodblock print illustrator that ever lived!
