Synopsis: A gorgeous presentation devoted to the art of Japanese eroticism, drawn from the Honolulu Museum of Art’s rare and distinguished collection. The Japanese paintings and prints called shunga (literally "spring pictures") reflected the thriving sexual culture of early modern Japan and depicted with sensitivity and nuance the private lives of various social types, from courtesans and Kabuki actors to ordinary townspeople. Organized around a series of exhibitions at the Honolulu Museum of Art, this sumptuous volume presents art from the museum’s vast holdings of ukiyo-e prints, woodblock-printed books, and paintings, particularly those originating from the collections of scholar Richard D. Lane and famed author James A. Michener. These fascinating works, dating from the seventeenth through the twentieth centuries, explore Japan’s sexual culture (including issues of gender and the country’s ever-evolving sex industry) with humor as well as a surprisingly sophisticated literary and art-historical approach. Sure to become a collector’s item, this gorgeously designed publication offers stunning color plates showcasing numerous and unusual examples of exquisite Japanese erotica. Texts by leading scholars of shunga and ukiyo-e complete this treasure album of a book.

About the Author: Stephan Jost is the director, Shawn Eichman is curator of Asian art, and Stephen Salel is the Robert F. Lange Foundation Assistant Curator of Japanese Art at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Book Description Erotik aus der Geheimkammer, »sexuell explizite Werke, ausgeleuchtet bis ins kleinste Detail« (Frankfurter Rundschau): »Shunga« ist der traditionelle japanische Begriff für erotische Malereien und Graphiken. Man nennt sie auch makura-e, »Kopfkissenbilder«. Sie wurden westlichen Diplomaten als Geschenke überreicht, der Jugendstil-Zeichner Aubrey Beardsley schmückte sein Treppenhaus mit ihnen, Pablo Picasso besaß eine ganze Sammlung. Die erotische Kunst, die im Japan der Edo-Zeit von 1600 bis etwa 1900 entstand, findet sich auf Gemälden, Zeichnungen, Drucken und Büchern. Sie feiern die Freuden der körperlichen Liebe. Beim Betrachten der Bilder wird einem rasch klar, »dass manche der so ungemein einflussreichen Techniken der japanischen Künstler, zum Beispiel die Herausstellung von Details (modern ausgedrückt: das Zoomen) eng zusammenhängen mit dem Sujet der Shunga. Da es ums Sexuelle geht, also um die Befriedigung einiger weniger Organe, komponiert sich ein Bild stets um die herum. So findet man hier, wenn man so sagen darf, Großaufnahmen der männlichen und weiblichen Genitalien, wie wir sie in Europa erst kennen seit es eine entsprechende Objektivtechnik für Filmkameras gibt« (FR). »Sexuelle Begierde und ihre Erfüllung im Geschlechtsakt werden als völlig natürlich dargestellt«, staunt das Kunstmagazin art, »zwar waren die Shunga in Japan über weite Strecken verboten, doch die Behörden drückten meist ein Auge zu, der Verkauf zumindest unter dem Ladentisch war immer möglich. Im 20. Jahrhundert wurde ihr Verbot dann strikt eingehalten, und auch heute noch unterliegt ihre öffentliche Präsentation gewissen Einschränkungen.« Dieser Band kennt solche Einschränkungen nicht! In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Honolulu Museum of Art entstand eine umwerfende Sammlung, die den japanischen Erotizismus in all seinen Facetten zeigt (Text engl.) 20 x 27,5 cm, 304 Seiten, zahlr. meist farb. Abb., geb. mit Schutzumschlag. Seller Inventory # 668214
