Unrolling Pictures for the Erotic Imagination

A Designer, His Publisher, and The Scroll of the Sleeve

This chapter begins by analyzing the erotic handscroll The Scroll of the Sleeve and attributing the name of an artist and a publisher to the project. This approach takes seriously the decision by its makers not to sign the work, in accordance with period censorship practices, but argues that artistic style and material presentation were, in effect, serving as markers for the contributions by Torii Kiyonaga and Nishimuraya Yohachi, respectively. The chapter compares The Scroll of Sleeve with extant works achieved through their partnership to elucidate this attribution while also inquiring further into the erotic themes as portrayed and their relationship to floating world cultural practices.

Keywords:   Torii Kiyonaga, Nishimuraya Yohachi, erotica, shunga, pillar prints, handscrolls, viewership, censorship, Tsukioka Settei, sex, collaboration
