Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Shunga ?is the most comprehensively informative book ever to be written on the subject, truly a Masterclass. It ?is exquisitely and abundantly illustrated and ?traces the influences that came from many sources including various religions and the Kama Sutra. Shunga uniquely places the images in groups relating to different sexual practices, allowing the reader to find his or her area of erotic interest. It ?explains the cultural forces behind some of Shunga images and why the Japanese find them so erotic and ?reveals Shungas influence on some of the great Western art movements, such as, Impressionism. ?It shows how it is still possible to buy fine Shunga wood block prints without breaking the bank and gives excellent practical advice for would-be collectors. ?An invaluable guide for museum-goers, anyone interested in the arts of Japan and connoisseurs of erotic art.
