Authentic Edo period original, c.1825, Japanese erotic art shunga woodblock print picture by TOYOKUNI I Utagawa (1769-1825).  From his series, Kon kurabe tama no ase. 

Shunga picture measures 27 cm x 22.1 cm.  Good colors and impressions.  Condition is fair+ with some tiny wormage at the bottom of the picture and water stains in the middle of it.  No backing.  Please see and judge from photos.


This is a very rare and famous shunga scene by Toyokuni featuring a ninja shining a light on a bound woman as he rapes her.  If not for the water stains, it would be at least a $1,200 picture.


“A shocking image including a sadistic masked intruder raping a woman. She is tied to a pole near the doorway while he shines his lantern on her to examine her anxiety. The fallen screen in the background reminds us of the violent interaction that happened shortly before."  excerpt from P.238 of Japanese Erotic Art: The Hidden World of Shunga by Ofer Shagan.
