Original woodblock print, Shunga - Nishikawa Sukenobu (1671-1750) School 西川祐信派 - N.4 Extremely Rare double page illustrations from the shunga book "Koshoku Aka" 好色赤 (Amorous Red) - ca 1750 - Japan

Original Japanese shunga erotic woodblock prints.

N.4 extremely rare double page illustrations taken from the shunga book "Koshoku Aka" (好色赤), that is "Amorous Red".

The prints date back to the mid-18th century and were made by an unidentified artist whose style is attributable to the Nishikawa Sukenobu School (西川祐信派).

The illustrations are not signed, and are made in a small horizontal book-format yokobon (横本), due to the censorship imposed by the Tokugawa shogunate (徳川幕府), who officially banned erotic or lascivious books koshokubon (好色本) from 1722 onwards.

Condition: fair (right signs of aging, stains, small holes, trimmed margins).

Size of each sheet: 9 x 13.5 cm

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