Depicted is a mature couple, the woman with shaved eye-brows (indicating that she is either married, or a widow). 
They engage most passionately, their kiss however, far overshadowed by the blatantly violent reactions of their 
sexual organs. The design may seem a trifle static: doubtless the artist intended to provide both readers and participants 
with a kind of catharsis, the perception that the sexual climax may seem a kind of temporary death.

A young couple lost in the passion of love-making !

The prints in this album are characteristic of shunga from the Meiji era: the printing is exquisite, with a generous use of metallic pigments and bokashi (tonal gradation) to express the lovely quality of the kimono. The contour lines are equally refined. Other Meiji artists who designed similar albums include Yoshu Chikanobu, Tomioka Eisen and his pupil Hamda Josen. (cat.no.99). Terukata was a pupil of MIzuno Toshikata (1866-1908). While at Toshikata΄s studio he met and later married Sakakibara Shoen (1888-1917), who as Ikeda Shoen became an artist in her own right. Terukata was a designer of kuchi-e and an illustrator of books and magazines. He also produced many horizontal plates, often in albums of twelve images, that featured the latest fashions for major department stores like the Mitsukoshi. 
These were sometimes issued as a form of advertisement. (p.239 in 'Japanese Erotic Fantasies' by C.Uhlenbeck and M.Winkel.)

Series:
'Shunshoku hana no shizuku' (Erotic Drops of Flower Petals). Wonderful use of black lacquer (wonderful details on the black kimono of the man depicted from the back!), gauffrage and metallic pigments !

A delightful depiction of the interior of a brothel. The owner of the house is entertaining his geisha's (courtisans) and a customer who is getting his kiseru (Japanese smoking pipe) ready. Next to the customer sits an oiran (high-class courtisan) accompanied by a young attendant (kamuro)!

"The identity of the artist in this work is still unclear. In his personal notes regarding this impression in the Pulverer collection, Jack Hillier argued for an attribution to Eisen due to the quality of the floral cartouches and the facial expressions. One of the pages is signed with a pseudonym, which could be read 'Gonomon Shunjono' or 'Shunjoshin', but to date no artist has been linked to this name. If we are to accept an attribution to Eisen based on stylistic grounds, then perhaps it should be dated to the latter part of his career". (p.166 in 'Japanese Erotic Fantasies, Sexual Imagery of the Edo Period' by C. Uhlenbeck and M. Winkel).
