    japanese erotica on washi paper

    Japan
    1970s
    27 x 21 cm

     
    This erotic sketch is done on washi paper which is quite thin. The drawing is well done and with a light touch. The picture appears along with script which, presumably, describes the scene. The illustration is highly stylized and could be anatomically impossible.
     
    By conventional standards these are erotic (some would say obscene). Among upper classes of Japan, such a drawing (more likely an entire book) would be a wedding gift to a bride and groom, and was intended to be instructional with regard to human sexuality, which the bride and groom were assumed to be totally naive about.
     
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase.

    Hi I am Willian Mitchell Antiques.

    I have a variety of items from different corners of the globe. My work
    as an English teacher has taken me to Asia, Africa and the Middle
    East. It is this travel that set me on the road to antiques and
    collecting. Shops, outdoor markets, private homes, and individuals
    have been the source of my collection. I am especially attracted to
    illustrated textiles and manuscripts and have several on offer. I have
    even more of these from my recent travel to India. I continue to love
    the hunt and the interesting people I meet along the way.
