Description:
Wonderfully illustrated catalogue (2004) English. Hardcover 248pp. Size: 10 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches. Excellent condition.
Title: 'Japanese Erotic Fantasies' by G. Winkel and C. Uhlenbeck. 

With 277 full colour illustrations of the prints shown at the largest shunga exhibition ever held in the world called "Lentelust" in Rotterdam, the Netherlands! There's an excellent historical overview (17th C. to Meiji period and beyond) of the genre with treatments on all the major Ukiyo-e masters such as Settei, Moronobu, Harunobu, Koryusai, Hokusai, Utamaro, Eiri, Shunchô, Kiyonaga, Shigenobu, Eisen, Eizan, Kunisada, Kyosai...etc. 

There's all so a lot of attention to the social, historical and artistic context, the various impressions, techniques of composition, formats, toy-prints, voyeurism, homosexuality and the humour in the designs! In our opinion this book is the most beautifully illustrated and best reference in the shunga genre surpassing the somewhat dated ' Shunga, the Art of Love in Japan' by Tom and Mary Evans ! 

Unmissable for the shunga connoisseur! A future classic !

Very Rare Shunga Hokusai Oban c.1812  - Sewing Box.From Hokusai's first oban series: Brocade of the East !

  > Click on the Picture.

Description:
Beautiful original antique Japanese color woodblock Hokusai (1760-1849). Shunga (Erotic print). Very good condition, fine impression and colors. 
Date: c.1812. Total size: 10" x 15" inches. Series: 'Azuma Nishiki ' (Brocade of the East). Depiction of an intimate couple! The woman leaning on a black sewing box while the man pulls up her kimono! There's a little bit of paper loss caused by the use of metallic pigment, slight centerfold, some tiny holes and staining, minor wear and soiling otherwise very good state with very fresh colors! Full size, extensive 'burnishing' to black parts! Nicely executed use of gauffrage and metallic highlights (on sewing-box and clothing)! Highly detailed carving of individual hair-lines!

The love-making position of this couple was a very popular one among Ukiyo-e artists because it enabled a more naturalistic depiction of the genitalia and endowed the composition with a tension likened to a tightly strung bow! This design is from Hokusai's first oban series, and he made his most impressive shunga designs in this format!

References:
The ' Brocade of the East' -series is described by Richard Lane in his article: ' Love's Labour's Found : The Erotic of Hokusai ' on p.54 and 55 in the book ' Hokusai ' by Gian Carlo Calza.

Book No. 7 in the series 'Japanese Complete Ukiyo-e Shunga Series' by Richard Lane and Yoshikazu Hayashi is totally dedicated to the 'Brocade of East' -series! This famous set, consisting of 27 books, are a treatise of the most important shunga series of the Ukiyo-e !  A closer study on Hokusai's shunga designs in the oban format, like the deliberate composition, the complex placing of the kimono's and garment, reveal the genius of a great master!

Beautiful and very rare piece of art by one of the most famous artists in the history of Japan !


Tomioka Eisen.

Tomioka Eisen was born in Nagano prefecture, he went to Tokyo to study drafting and was employed by the army. Later he resigned from the army and became a pupil of Kobayashi Eitaku and a full time illustrator. Most of his works were illustrations for newspapers, kuchi-e and shunga! He is one of the most important woodblock artists of the Meiji period!

About Tomioka Eisen's work in shunga: "Although at a distance of almost a century and with a style and a poetic language by now quite old, we are therefore in front of a trial of subtle and allusive eroticism for certain verses similar to that of Utamaro..." (p. 168 in ' Shunga, the Erotic Art of Japan' by Marco Fagioli).
