19c shunga netsuke WOMAN in tub by KAGETOSHI
19th century ivory shunga netsuke of a lady taking a bath in a wooden tub and pulling a loincloth off a man seated by the tub and seemingly resisting her advances. Excellent carving conveying the essence of the scene, superb faces, light staining, very pleasant patina and wear. Signed KAGETOSHI on the bottom - this brilliant carver is discussed on p. 554 of NETSUKE & INRO ARTISTS AND HOW TO READ THEIR SIGNATURES by George Lazarnick. Unusual subject for the master, who is better known for his minute landscapes. Length 1 7/8 inches.
