The exhibition Shunga – Eroticism and Dreams of Edo Period opens on Wednesday, May 22, 2018 at 7pm at the PM Gallery of the Home of the Croatian Association of Artists.

Shunga paintings (1600 to 1900) were extremely popular in Japan, they were known as “spring paintings” and were made by great masters of woodcut such as Hokusiai, Utamara and Kunisada. At the beginning of the 21st century, Shunga was re-discovered and presented to the public by a large exhibition at the British Museum in London. Stuart Frost, one of the curators from the British Museum, will also participate in the Zagreb exhibition. Ironically, although Shunga paintings were removed from popular and scientific memory in Japan and became taboo, at the same time were discovered and enthusiastically collected by artists from the West. These explicit and beautifully detailed erotic images inspired Toulouse-Lautrec, Rodin and Picasso. The influence is also visible in today’s pop culture of Japan from tattoo artists to anime and manga.
