This is a great publication that reviews the best shunga in a unique publication of very high quality. Any collector of shunga will find this a treasure, but also anybody interested in Japanese art will love it. Even, any human interested in sexuality end erotics (and who is not!) should have a look. A masterpice.

Shunga art is as fascinating as elusive it can get. You can really feel the passion and dedication the author has spent investigating, organizing and preparing the excellent compilations of high quality pictures really well documented and dated. It's been a great finding this very web-page for us Shunga lovers!

I am totally in love with this newly discovered site, and the addition of a free e-book with works that were previously totally unknown to me as well as in depth analysis of these works has already shown me how dedicated Shunga Gallery is to spreading the love of this fine antique form of Japanese erotic art. Thank you!

This free 25 page ebook is a great primer on shunga by the great Hokusai. Whether just discovering shunga or exploring for a while, it will show you some new things and help lead you with information to your areas of interest. At the end there is a good amount of information on the origins and legacy of his magna opus, The Octopus print. This site shares so much information its a joy.

Great book (and here is why). Shunga has been in the shadows for a hundred or so years... and open discussion was more or less limited to academic writing or the collector's underground. This book is symbolic of a more mainstream and accessible shunga, meant to be available to the general public alongside its legitimate cousins from the woodblock printing eras. I think this is the leading edge of a "Hokusai Wave" of interest, and books such as these can add to this energy.

As one of the most important and great masters of Ukiyo-e, Katsushika Hokusai became famous throughout the world and has been a great influence in visual arts in Japan and in Western contemporary art. His innovative way of expressing, amazing composition and knowledge about colour, makes Hokusai one of the greatest artists of all time. Hokusai made a lot of masterpieces such as "The Great Wave Off Kanagawa", well known for all art lovers, but this e-book that Shunga Gallery gently provides to us, shows another side of Hokusai 's art. Shunga, the Japanese erotic art, is full of humour and human interest. As Eastern Art has no limitations on nude depicting or explicit sex, Shunga became popular and successful. When creating erotica, Hokusai played sexual situations of everyday life, with the distinctive seal of the greatest artists.

Dear Marijn, You have absolutely outdone yourself with this latest 47 page publication....”Hokusai’s Complete Shunga Legacy.” This eBook is a true gift to anyone interested in the history of Shunga and detailed background information relating to Hokusai’s works. The photos are superb and many I saw for the very first time. I have plans of putting together a Meetup group here in the States for all things Shunga and your wealth of articles on ShungaGallery.com will definitely be the cornerstone of the group’s monthly discussions. Thank you for all the great work you have done and continue to do for this great art!!

To me the keyword in shunga is passion. The artists were often at there most passionate when creating this particular type of art. The images themselves convey undiluted passion in every form. And now, we finally see a website passionately devoted to shunga. Keep it up!
