After countless and generally inappropriate attempts, Martin rekindled his great admiration for shunga, and developed the series of drawings in this book.

Japanese erotic art, shunga, has a long history, with thousands of paintings, prints, and illustrated books produced, mostly from the seventeenth to late nineteenth centuries. Shunga literally means picture of spring spring being a common Japanese euphemism for sex and the works celebrate all facets of human sexuality with great candor. Unlike earlier books that have tended to focus on individual artists, this new publication has a thematic structure, covering the whole spectrum of sexual practice and expression, including adultery and jealousy, voyeurism, orgasm, and violent sex and death. Using images from his own unparalleled collection, Ofer Shagan brings the rich and vast world of shunga to modern view, highlighting the messages, symbols, and humor that often appear in the background but are fundamentally significant for understanding the messages in the art.

A gorgeous presentation devoted to the art of Japanese eroticism, drawn from the Honolulu Museum of Art’s rare and distinguished collection. The Japanese paintings and prints called shunga (literally "spring pictures") reflected the thriving sexual culture of early modern Japan and depicted with sensitivity and nuance the private lives of various social types, from courtesans and Kabuki actors to ordinary townspeople. Organized around a series of exhibitions at the Honolulu Museum of Art, this sumptuous volume presents art from the museum’s vast holdings of ukiyo-e prints, woodblock-printed books, and paintings, particularly those originating from the collections of scholar Richard D. Lane and famed author James A. Michener. These fascinating works, dating from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries, explore Japan’s sexual culture (including issues of gender and the country’s ever-evolving sex industry) with humor as well as a surprisingly sophisticated literary and art-historical approach. Sure to become a collector’s item, this gorgeously designed publication offers stunning color plates showcasing numerous and unusual examples of exquisite Japanese erotica. Texts by leading scholars of shunga and ukiyo-e complete this treasure album of a book.

This book presents the Japanese art of Shunga and Bijinga from the mid 1700s to the mid 1950s. Shunga is Japanese for 'spring pictures' but means 'erotic art'. The translation of Bijinga is 'pictures of beautiful people' meaning women, commonly referred to as 'beauties'. There is a link between them, as both are sexual in nature, with many pictures being of courtesans, or women as subjects of desire. But there is a lot more to it than that! This is not an academic book but more a personal journey of discovery by an accidental collector of Japanese woodblock prints. Bob Bentley informs, entertains and hopefully inspires like-minded fellow travelers embarking on similar explorations. The illustrations show a fascinating culture which thrived in the period when Japan was isolated from the rest of the world up to a time when the style and beauty of its art eventually exploded into the Western imagination. Bob has acquired a number of rare and original prints, as well as the more affordable, including re-prints, some almost as wonderful. The book is based purely on his collection - with delicate prints reproduced in high quality - imperfections and all. Many are exquisite works of art. This is a demonstration of the art that many people can acquire - at one level or another. Although there may be several hand made prints available of the same image, no two are identical. In buying prudently, you will see how it is possible to enjoy originals of the greatest artists, alongside beautifully crafted reprints. Here is a real passion, expressed in clear language, demystifying a culture that has provided the world with some of the most glorious art that has ever been seen.

Japan's shunga woodblock prints were originally created to advertise the facilities of the Edo-era pleasure quarters, including tea houses, restaurants and theaters, as well as the brothels. But this new art form quickly took on a life of its own, portraying every imaginable form of sexual activity from straight heterosexual acts through sodomy, bestiality and a wide range of fetishes. Today, these images of sex, many of which are grossly caricatured with outrageously proportioned genitalia, are highly sought after by collectors of art and erotica the world over. Neo Shunga, introduced here as part of the current Japanese trend of restyling traditional fashions for the 21st century, brings together in one volume some of the most fascinating images to come out of the shunga movement. These include acts of voyeurism, masturbation, menage a trios, group sex, and even bestiality with an octopus. Contains graphic sexual imagery

In this, the first collection in English of feminist-oriented research on Japanese art and visual culture, an international group of scholars examines representations of women in a wide range of visual work. The volume begins with Chino Kaori's now-classic essay Gender in Japanese Art, which introduced feminist theory to Japanese art. This is followed by a closer look at a famous thirteenth-century battle scroll and the production of bijin (beautiful women) prints within the world of Edoperiod advertising. A rare homoerotic picture-book is used to extrapolate the grammar of desire as represented in late seventeenth-century Edo. In the modern period, contributors consider the introduction to Meiji Japan of the Western nude and oil-painting and examine Nihonga (Japanese-style painting) and the role of one of its famous artists. The book then shifts its focus to an examination of paintings produced for the Japanese-sponsored annual salons held in colonial Korea. The post-war period comes under scrutiny in a study of the novel Woman in the Dunes and its film adaptation. The critical discourse that surrounded women artists of the late twentieth-century - the Super Girls of Art - i

During the Edo period in eighteenth-century Japan, erotic paintings and prints known today as shunga were popular among both men and women. Yet, prior to Tim Screech’s definitive study, Sex and the Floating World, no one had attempted to situate these overtly sexual images within the contexts of the sexual, gender, or class tensions of the time. Newly revised and expanded, this second edition of Sex and the Floating World examines how and why these images were made and used. Along the way, Screech illuminates a provocative world of sexual fantasy in Edo Japan. ‘With concern, proportion, wit and a bit of levity, the author of this authoritative and invaluable contribution to scholarship has given us the book for which we have long waited.”—Japan Times “Screech provides a fascinating and informative introduction to the social and sexual habits of pre-modern Japan, copiously illustrated and full of witty anecdotes as well as solid scholarly research. The ideal bedtime read?”—Insight Japan

Much has been written on Japanese woodblock prints, book illustrations and paintings of the Edo period known as Ukiyo-e, but often neglected in any discussion of this rich artistic tradition is the genre of erotic imagery. Many celebrated Ukiyo-e artists such as Suzuki Harunobu (1725?-70), Isoda Koryusai (1735-90), Torii Kiyonaga (1752-1815), Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806), Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), Keisai Eisen (1790-1848) and Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1865) created significant numbers of sexually explicit compositions that are today collectively referred to as shunga, or 'spring pictures'. As objects deemed injurious to public morals, shunga were banned by the Tokugawa government. Faced with the challenges of working in an illegal genre and the demand for shunga by a voracious public, shunga artists exhibited an innovativeness and creativity in their work that would be remarkable in any age.
