$1,200

About

An antique Japanese Shunga woodblock print in gilt frame depicting a man and a woman making love. Created in Japan, this woodblock print called a Shunga and depicting a couple making love, derives from an erotic artistic tradition featuring graphic images of sexual activity. The Japanese word shunga means picture of spring, "spring" being a common euphemism for sex. Shunga were produced between the sixteenth century and the nineteenth century by ukiyo-e artists. Showcasing grey, pink, red and black tones, this Shunga woodblock print is set inside a gilded frame and secured under glass.
