Shunga, Woodblock print (reprint) - Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806) - Geisha and Amorous Man 芸者と色男 - From the series "Unraveling the Threads of Desire" 願ひの糸ぐち - 1920s - Japan

Japanese shunga erotic fine woodblock reprint

Condition: Overall very good (right signs of aging, slight patina of time)

Size: 26 x 39

The print is taken from the series "Unravelling the Threads of Desire" (願ひの糸ぐち) that, made in 1799, eleven years after the first great success "Poem of the pillow" (歌枕), is the second of the three famous series of shunga of Utamaro, the last of which is "Tugging Komachi" (小町引き) in 1802. These three collections testify to the development, over the years, of the style of the famous ukiyo-e master who became more and more refined and voluptuous.

The woodblock print will be well-packaged and shipped by registered mail with a tracking code.
