    About

    A fine art print of the lead image for the exhibition, Shunga: sex and pleasure in Japanese art. This piece, called Sode no maki (Handscroll for the Sleeve), is the most celebrated shunga work by Torii Kiyonaga. Dated to about 1785, the original - from which this is one part - is a long and very narrow handscroll showing eleven erotic scenes. In this scene a man and woman kiss passionately with eyes closed. The pair are naked, save for her single red undergarment. There is nothing in the background to give a clue as to their status or relationship. The figures are cropped in an extraordinary way within the unusually long, narrow format. Also of note are the undulating lines that express their bodies as well as the richness and variety of their expressions.
