    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. The figures of the couples 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. This particular scene looks to be the first sexual experience of a young woman of a well-to-do family, who covers her mouth shyly. The more experienced man moistens his fingers, eager to explore the young woman's body.
