Sensual Encounter Disturbed By Strong Cloud-Burst

An amorous couple surprised by a sudden cloud-burst close to their room is looking for cover. The thunderstorm is so close that the flashes lighten their room. The mosquito-net suggests that this scene takes place during a hot summer night.

Complexity

A dynamic and intricate image by the notorious Keisai Eisen (1790-1848). The complexity is in the display of the various garments, the mosquito-netting and the flashes of lightning from the cloud-burst outside.

The following amusing design that concerns a similar scene was sent to us by our passionate member Darya…

I like early Eisen's manner that is close to Hokusai. This piece reminds of the print by Harunobu depicting a man with an erected penis and two women https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/21106/lot/314/" rel="nofollow">scared by a storm.

As for designs that are closer to this Eisen's work, Yoshitora created something similar (interrupted copulation) in his 'Ehon Senrikyo' (ca. 1824). So yes, there is a wide range of prints on this theme.

Thanks Darya. Another similar scene that I love comes from Shigenobu's 'https://www.shungagalleryshop.com/artist/shigenobu-yanagawa/heavy-thunder" rel="nofollow">Ama no ukibashi (The Floating Bridge of Heaven)', issued in 1830, that depicts a threesome interrupted by a thunder storm. If you have a picture of the Yoshitora design I would love to add it to the other article on mosquito-netting..!" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">https://shungagallery.com/mosquito-netting/">mosquito-netting..!
