Shunga: Sex and Pleasure in Japanese ArtShunga refers to a group of sexually explicit painting, prints and illustrations that were produced in Japan between 1600 and 1900 and the British Museum examines the part these images play in the country's social and cultural history in this temporary and explicit exhibition. The images range from being funny, tender or beautiful and include depictions of sex between humans and animals which explains the age restriction - anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. The exhibition aims to reveal what shunga actually is and how it has influenced Japanese art and culture as well as European artists like Toulouse-Lautrec, Rodin and Picasso.
