“Sex, sexual pleasure and the depiction of sexuality, the quotation simply puts, are an essential part of life, and we should celebrate this aspect of our existence.”

- Andrew Gerstle
University of London

“Humour is a very important element of shunga and an alternative name for shunga, warai-e (‘laughter pictures’), implies that the works are meant to be entertaining.”

- Monta Hayakawa
International Ukiyo-e Society

“Epiphanic in a word, namely a savage human behavior, but the essence of the art exists there”
