Original woodblock print, Shunga (6) - Santo Kyoden (1761-1816) - Six Rare Woodblock Printed Works taken from a Sumizuri-e (墨摺絵) black and white Shunga Book - Late 18th century

Important lot of 6 woodcuts made in the late 18th century and attributable in all probability to the poet, writer and artist Santo Kyoden (山東京伝)

Santo Kyoden was born in Fukagawa in Edo (modern Tokyo). His real name was Iwase Samuru (岩瀬醒), and he was also known popularly as Kyoya Denzo (京屋伝蔵). The Iwase family into which he was born were pawnbrokers in a lumberyard. He studied ukiyo-e under master Kitao Shigemasa (北尾重政), and began illustrating kibyoshi under the pseudonym of Kitao Masanobu (北尾政寅). He soon started writing these novels also under the name of Santo Kyoden; several novels are labeled as written by Santo Kyoden and illustrated by Kitao Masanobu. He wrote kibyoshi and sharebon in great numbers, and became a popular writer.

The works are not signed due to censorship.

The prints are in reasonable/poor conditions and show signs of aging, ancient restorations and backing (please see the detail pictures).
