Original Japanese Woodblock Print Ukiyoe Erotic Shunga Meiji Era
Description & History- This is a very beautiful and special original Japanese Erotic woodblock print “Shunga” made in Meiji Era. This is an original woodblock print more than 100 years old. This original woodblock print is from Dr. Ben family seven-decade old collection of Japanese woodblock prints and Asian Art.
Medium- Original Japanese Woodblock Print
Date of Creation- Original Japanese Woodblock Print, 1870s
Print Size- 14 3/4 x 10 1/4 inches
Print Condition- 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. This woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard and strong ink bleeding can be seen through the back of the thin Japanese mulberry Washi paper. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. Except for four repairs at the bottom edge in the back of the print, this woodblock print is in good condition.
