Default Shunga

Coming to the British Museum Oct. 3rd. Gosh, I wish I lived across the pond.

I used to have a book about Shunga (part of a great set of volumes on erotic art) & I would love to see this exhibit!

People who have been say that there's too much in it; too many pictures saying/showing the same thing. Mind you, I'd really love to see Hokusai's Dream of the Fisherman's Wife, to know if the eyes of the octopus are as haunting as the reproductions suggest they must be.

Perhaps the feeling of there being too much is the result of its being popular. Shuffling queue syndrome is not the best state in which to explore a gallery.
