Exclusive to the British Museum, a silk scarf featuring a scene from Kitagawa Utamaro’s Poem of the Pillow (1788).

The image repeated on this printed silk scarf is a section from an image entitled Lovers in an upstairs room, and shows a tender moment between a couple. The main frames are bordered by motifs of bamboo, leaves, and patterns from the lovers’ robes.

The original print by Kitagawa Utamaro (c.1756-1806) is part of a series entitled Utamakura, or ‘Poem of the Pillow’, and can be seen housed in the British Museum's collection. In early modern Japan, thousands of sexually explicit paintings, prints and illustrated books were produced. These were collectively called ‘spring pictures’, or shunga.

A sensational gift for a lover of Japanese art.
