Nude Japanese Women Paintings
Most shunga are a type of ukiyo-e , usually executed in woodblock print format. While rare, there are extant erotic painted handscrolls which predate ukiyo-e. Following the aesthetics of everyday life, Edo-period shunga varied widely in its depictions of sexuality. As a subset of ukiyo-e it was enjoyed by all social groups in the Edo period, despite being out of favour with the shogunate. Almost all ukiyo-e artists made shunga at some point in their careers.
However, the nude was never its own genre within ukiyo-e prints, but instead only appeared in the shunga the term used for erotica in printmaking, painting, and book illustrations. More specifically full nudity was an exception and when any form of nudity did appear in prints or paintings, it was nearly always within an erotic context. Nudity also appeared in a few other subjects such as female abalone divers, the mountain woman of Japanese folklore Yamauba , and scenes relating to the bath. Although these images did not portray the same overt sexuality as the shunga, their sexual underpinnings were clearly present.
