Yuji Moriguchi - Octopus Shunga
There is a great tradition of erotic art in Japan called Shunga.  One of my favorites is Hokusai's "Dream of the Fisherman's Wife (1814)".  I like this new painting by Yuji Moriguchi just as much.  It's a remarkable work of art.  Also, see my "The Octopus In Japanese Erotic Art" article.  See more of Yuji's work here.

Art and Music Links For 12/05/2011

Takashima Ohisa - A Ukiyo-e Muse
Here's what the British Museum says about Ohisha: "Ohisa was one of the favourite subjects of several Ukiyo-e print artists in the 1790s, especially Kitagawa Utamaro (died 1806). Ohisa was the daughter of the proprietor of the Takashima chain of cake-shops and tea shops in Edo and seems to have made her reputation serving tea at the family shop near Ryōgoku Bridge.".  This print of Ohisa sold for $138K at Christies.
