    About

    A woodblock print by the Japanese artist Torii Kiyohiro, dated to 1751-64. The original artwork is on display in the Museum exhibition, Shunga: sex and pleasure in Japanese art. Shown is a woman's paper handkerchiefs blowing away together with a concealed love-letter, the wind raising her skirts to reveal her legs. Also shown is a poem and the artist's signature. The print is an example of shunga: sexually explicit images produced in early modern Japan (1600-1900). However unlike some other shunga prints this artwork is sexually suggestive, rather than explicit. It belongs to the group known as 'aduna-e': a series of commercial (and legally published) risque pictures that emerged after the tight publishing controls of 1722 limited the sexually explicit imagery being produced.
