Description

An antique Japanese Shunga woodblock print in gilt frame depicting two women making love. Created in Japan, this woodblock print called a Shunga and depicting two women 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 green, blue, brown and orange tones, this Shunga woodblock print is set inside a gilded frame and secured under glass.
