In the early 17th century, there was widespread male and female prostitution throughout the cities of Kyoto, Edo, and Osaka. To counter this, an order of Tokugawa Hidetada of the Tokugawa shogunate restricted prostitution to designated city districts. These districts were Shimabara in Kyoto, Shinmachi in Osaka, and Yoshiwara in Edo.****** About STEPHEN LONGSTREET (from his L.A. TIMES Obituary): ******Stephen Longstreet (1907-2002) was an artist, screenwriter and best selling author of numerous fiction and nonfiction books. An artist by training whose best-known artwork provides a firsthand chronicle of the dynamic and colorful world of jazz during the 20th century. Longstreet turned to writing to make a living during the Depression. His career as a writer blossomed and continued into his 80s. It was as varied as it was long. He wrote many critically acclaimed and bestselling novels and works of non-fiction. He was also a noted screenwriter. Under contract at Warner Bros. in the 1940s, Longstreet wrote "The Jolson Story" and also "Stallion Road," based on his novel of the same name and starring Ronald Reagan. He later wrote "The Helen Morgan Story," and as a television writer in the '50s and '60s he wrote for "Playhouse 90." He even wrote the book for the hit 1947 Broadway musical "High Button Shoes," which was based on his novel, "The Sisters Liked Them Handsome."

Works by Yayoi Kusama, including Macaroni Shirt, Red Dots and Phallic Bottle Tray, will also be on show. Bonhams is to display lost masterpieces from a private collection by Gutai and ZERO groups for the first time since the 1960s. It offers an opportunity to reassess these groundbreaking art movements, both of which have recently been in the spotlight in exhibitions such as Zero: Countdown to Tomorrow at The Guggenheim, New York. Writing about the groups for Bonhams Magazine, Hans Ulrich Obrist described the emergence of these artists as one of the great moments of the avant garde in the postwar era. Bonhams Head of Contemporary Art, Ralph Taylor, says, "To have the opportunity to host this museum quality collection at Bonhams is a rare and wonderful privilege." Among the works to be on view in Bonhams headquarters on New Bond Street are: Three works from Yayoi Kusama's first solo European show in 1965: Macaroni Shirt, Red Dots and Phallic Bottle Tray; Kazuo Shiraga's Red Fan; A suite of four early and delicate works by Jan Schoonhoven; A large piece by Günther Uecker from 1967. The first time ZERO and Gutai art were shown together was at the 1965 Stedelijk Museum's Nul exhibition. In 2006, this Nul 1965 show was reconstructed in the ZERO exhibition at Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf. This was the beginning of the revival in both ZERO and Gutai we have witnessed today.******
