Rosina Buckland, National Museum of Scotland, discusses shunga in the period following Japan’s political reordering of 1868.
The artworks show continuities with shunga of the previous decades, while simultaneously opening up new roles for women, who entered this fantasy world as sexual agents.
The lecture also highlights the factors that led to a decline and eventual disappearance of shunga at the end of the 19th century.
Parental guidance advised for under 16s.
