In amusing contrast to the crumpy men standing in the rain outside, the man inside has a better deal with his 
female spouse soaping his penis. The designs of this series all point to a specific station of the 53 Stations 
of the Tokaido
as featured in Hiroshige's eponymous series. This is most probably station Tsuchiyama-juku  
(the 49th Station). Therefore Shozan is also called 'the prime topographer of sex.' "

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 !

“A shocking image including a sadistic masked intruder raping a woman. She is tied to a pole near the doorway while he shines his lantern on her to examine her anxiety. The fallen screen in the background reminds us of the violent interaction that happened shortly before.This design was probably inspired by the piece from the Conjugal Eddies-series.“

The style of the Kon kurabe tama no ase –series is also reminiscent of Utagawa Toyokuni I, and could very well 
be a later work by him”
