Suzuki Harunobu, Beside a Standing Screen

Suzuki Harunobu, ca. 1724-1770

Beside a Standing Screen

from an untitled series; in an upstairs room with the door open to a verandah overlooking blossoming cherry trees, an over-eager man frantically embraces a young woman while she resists his advances, perhaps he has been aroused by the books on the floor in front of a tsuitate screen which is discreetly signed Harunobu ga, ca. 1768

chuban yoko-e 8 1/8 by 11 1/4 in., 20.7 by 28.5 cm
