Utagawa Kunisada II
Japanese Meiji Ukiyo-e Printmaking
Japanese, (1823–1880) Utagawa (originally Takenouchi) Munehisa. F.N.: Masakichi, later Seitaro. Go: Baido, Horaisha, Ichijusai, Ichiyosai, Kochoro, Kunimasa III, Kunisada, Toyokuni IV.
Ukiyo-e printmaker; pupil of Kunisada. At first signed his prints Baido Kunimasa III or Kunimasa, pupil of Kochoro. In 1846 he married his master's daughter, and took the go of Kunisada II, and used it with the go of Kochoro and Ichijusai. About 1870, after Kunisada's death, he began to use the go of Toyokuni IV. His prints, largely done in garish aniline colors, represent the exaggerated style of late ukiyo-e.
