Erotic Art of Ancient Japan Exhibited in Moscow

The exhibition Shunga. Erotic Art of Ancient Japan runs in the Vetoshny Gallery in Moscow.

      The visitors will see erotic sculptures, engravings, frank portraits of courtesans, painted kimonos, and manuals on intimate life, the so-called “rolls of brides”. The entrance to the exhibition hall is strictly age limited.

      Erotic art was a real taboo for centuries in Japan. Nevertheless, despite the strictest ban, pictures on this subject were created by lots of great Japanese artists, including the legendary Katsushika Hokusai.  

      Shunga inspired Picasso and Toulouse-Lautrec and had a great influence on modern art of Japan. Presently numerous manga and anime trends resort to subjects and stylistics of the ancient engravings.

      The exhibition runs till August 31.
