Extremely Rare Utamaro Shunga Masterpiece - Homo-Erotic - c.1803.

   For more info  > Homo Erotic Shunga Masterpiece.

Description:
Original antique Japanese color woodblock prints Utamaro (1753-1806). Shunga (Erotic print). Date: c.1803. 
Half-size oban yoko-e size (O-tanzakuban yoko-e) : 6 1/2" x 14" inches. Very good impression, color and condition. 
A slight vertical album fold, minor creases, marks and flaws otherwise a very well preserved print ! 
Full size, no repairs and wonderful use of gauffrage !

The young boy depicted here is a so called temple page ('chigo' or 'terakosho' ), they were available to monks, who were regarded without censure as among the most avid adherents to the so called ' Way of the youth'.

As often with male-male depictions in Japanese shunga, one of the depicted persons - taking the active role - is an older man ('nenjo' ). 
The receptive partner ('wakashu' ) was invariably a pre-pubescent or pubescent boy or a young man who has not yet shaved off his forelock, a sign in Japanese society that he had not yet come of age. Male-male relationships, within the samurai class and in monasteries between monks and their young acolytes, were a common phenomenon in Tokugawa Japan, as was prostitution among young kabuki actors of female roles.

The size of this very rare print is quite uncommon: a half-size horizontal oban design would have been carved on one half of a woodblock, with another design carved from the other. This design is most likely from a set of twelve prints issued late in Utamaro's life ! Look for the inro on the floor behind the young man's head !

Another design from this series is housed in the collection of the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam !

Description:
Original antique Japanese color woodblock Utamaro (1750-1806). Shunga (Erotic picture). Date: 1802.

Very good impression (with gauffrage), color and condition. Backing, some very small repairs, minor marks and flaws.

Utamaro's famous shunga ehon Michiyuki koi no futozao was inspired by theatrical dramas of the Japanese puppet theater, 
the 'Bunraku'. The subject is based on dramatized tales (yet based on true stories) of 'fated lovers' who commit double 'love' suicide. 
The stories evolved into a line of dramas for 'Bunraku' and Kabuki theatre called shinju mono (double-suicide plays) and by 
chronicles on famous lovers, such as Gompachi and Komurosaki.

Shunga designs by Utamaro are very rare and highly treasured !
