Original Japanese Woodblock Print Erotic Shunga Afternoon Nap Taisho Period
This is a very beautiful and special original Japanese erotic Shunga woodblock print “Afternoon Nap” made in Taisho period IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. This woodblock print is part of a large number of gorgeous, different-styled Japanese art collections in my family that we are gradually selling. Among Japanese arts there are a very limited number of Shunga. 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. The size of this Shunga woodblock print is 12 1/2 x 9 inches. Like most Shunga, this woodblock print does not have the artist’s signature on it. This woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard. The colors which are vivid and vibrant are in layers. There was a small piece of backing paper, but is detached now, which leaves a spot in the back and only can be seen when light shine on the front of the Washi paper as shown. This woodblock print is IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. It is hard to find a Japanese erotic woodblock print of such a beautiful work in the public nowadays and it is definitely an incredible piece for collecting.
