23 images Created 6 Nov 2013
The exhibition "Shunga: sex and humour in Japanese art, 1600-1900" was held at the British Museum in London from 3 October 2013 to 5 January 2014. It featured sexually explicit "shunga" ukiyoe woodblock prints. The hugely-popular exhibition received 88,000 visitors, twice its target. It was curated by Timothy Clark. Despite the popularity of the UK exhibition, at the time a major shunga exhibition had yet to be held in Japan itself.
