Early Rape Design – Molestation Of A Seamstress – Isoda Koryusai – c.1770.

> Click on the Picture.

Description:

Original antique Japanese color woodblock print by Isoda Koryusai (1735-1790). Shunga (Erotic print). Date: c.1770/71.
Chuban yoko-e size: 10 1/3” x 7 4/5” inches. From an untitled series Fine impression, near fine color and condition.
Virtually full size. Slightly backed, very minor marks and flaws only. This print has been exceptionally well preserved with
fresh colors.

“A young girl on the second floor of a house is disturbed in her sewing work by a hairy intruder with a shaggy beard. We can only see part of the girl s face, but it might very well be that she is not amused, and that this furry man is an uninvited burglar who as forced the luscious sewer to have sex with him. She is not embracing him at all moreover, her left hand seems to be pushing him away. The girl’s unfinished needlework can be seen in the bottom right: a haribako (sewing box, lit. ‘needle box’) with a pin cushion on top, a striped piece of cloth, a pair of scissors and a ruler. The brown spots on the orange-colored staircase at the bottom left of the image are caused by oxidation of the colour pigments.“

This is one of the earliest examples in the shunga genre that features an explicit rape !

be a later work by him”
