OF PHALLIC WORSHIP (AND MORE)

Shunga

Ink on paper (c. 1830-1860): Woman with four men | Woman with three men | Woman with two men: JAPANESE SHUNGA and OTHER EROTICA, a calligraphy sui generis, and yes, often, not without humor.

Finally, it should be mentioned that while almost every major Japanese master created erotic prints and paintings, most of the erotica from China (and much of it from Japan) is considered anonymous. This has led to a much greater scholarship within the field of erotic art of Japan than perhaps in any other culture.

An online exhibition provided by the Greg Kucera Gallery, Seattle.

See also the other items on the gallery’s Print Inventory List (from Anne Appleby to Terry Winters), and the impressive current exhibition: Katy Stone – Paintings on Mylar (until Feb 26).

    In the spring of 2010 a book on shunga will be published by Phaidon and written by Gian Carlo Calza which will be the standardwork of the genre.
