A Great Orig Japanese Woodblock Print Shunga Meiji Era Twelve Erotic Scenes

$ 125.00

This is a very beautiful and special original Japanese Erotic woodblock print “Shunga” from the series of “Twelve Erotic Scenes” made in Meiji Era IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  This is an original woodblock print more than 100 years old.  This original woodblock print is from my family seven-decade old collection of Japanese woodblock prints and Asian Art. The size of this original erotic shunga woodblock print Ukiyoe is 14 3/4 x 10 inches. Shunga is ancient Japanese erotic art.  Most of the Shunga we see today are pages from old books at sizes around 5 inches.  Most original individual Shunga are collected by private collectors and are hardly ever displayed today.   The only ones I have ever seen in public were at a museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands.  Like most Shunga, this woodblock print does not have the artist’s signature on it.   However, it looks like Utamaro’s work. This woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard and strong ink bleeding can be seen through the back of Japanese mulberry Washi paper.  The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. This woodblock print is IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.  Shipping is $16 anywhere in US by USPS priority mail with insurance and tracking.  International shipping charges are US$25 through 1st class airmail WITHOUT insurance, buyers will have to assume all the risks during the mailing. We do combined shipping.  If more than one item is purchased at the same time, the highest shipping cost will be charged. All items will be shipped together.  THIS IS AN ORIGINAL JAPANESE WOODBLOCK PRINT UKIYOE MADE IN MEIJI ERA.  IT IS NOT A RE-CUT, REPRODUCTION, OR LITHO PRINT. (SF24_20220508)
