Shunga Ancient*Sakura Japanese Folk Music

Shunga*Sakura Japanese Folk Music 1700
Shunga is a Japanese term for erotic art…This shunga is a type of ukiyo-e, produced in woodblock print format in the 17th century…
The ukiyo-e movement as a whole sought to express an idealization of contemporary urban life and appeal to the new chōnin class… Following the aesthetics of everyday life, Edo period shunga varied widely in its depictions of sexuality…As a subset of ukiyo-e it was enjoyed by all social groups in the Edo period, despite being out of favor with the shogunate…Almost all ukiyo-e artists made shunga at some point in their careers, and it did not detract from their prestige as artists…
