Great website and even better pictures. Have always been a fan of Shunga since I read about ''pillow books'' in the James Bond novel You Only Live Twice..

good simple to navigate site. I`m British and simply do not like American sales patter. You don`t need to sell the painting just show it and let people enter the competition without the flannel.

What I admire about this Shunga painting is the vivid abondement to physical pleasure and passion by the woman in contrast the thoughtful concentration of her lover. She swoons, his mouth on her nipple, penetrated, her lips slightly parted. Also their is the following robes of both lovers, her vivid green and red robe in contrast to his soft grey and checkered. Their thin grey pubic hair, the real and lovely embrace of vagina and penis and wave ripples on both. Beautiful and sensual !

Hi Marijn! So glad I get your e-mails bringing joy and intrigue to our lives (especially in this time of lock-down). The Calender from 1929 is a good example of your range of subjects - and discoveries. Thank you! Warm Regards Robert

Hello Marijn Thoroughly enjoyed this article, as well as the most recent one by Darya. Thank you for pushing the “Shunga envelope” and showing us how much this art form has influenced artists and art over the years. P.S. I have not forgotten about that post that I have yet to make!
