Refined abuna-e (あぶな絵) "dangerous image" depicting a couple of young lovers reading a shunpon (春本), literally a "spring book", that is an illustrated erotic book.

The polychrome woodblock print, of vertical yotsugiri (四つ切り) format, is taken from a volume illustrated, in the first half of the 19th century, by the famous artist Keisai Eisen (渓斎英泉).

The rare print on Japanese washi paper (和紙), despite the obvious signs of aging including slight cracks in the lower left corner reinforced on the back with a restoration, is in overall fair condition.
