Yamaguchi Shigeharu
Edo Printmaker
Japanese, (1803–1853) Yamaguchi (orig. Takigawa) Yasuhide (orig. Kunishige). F.N.: Jinjiro. Go: Baigansai, Gyokuryusai, Gyokuryutei, Kiyosai, Kiyotei, Nagasaki, Ryusai, Ryutei, Shigeharu.
Ukiyo-e printmaker, born in Nagasaki. Pupil of Yanagawa Shigenobu and perhaps of Hokusai. Contemporary accounts refer to him as the only full-time professional designer of actor prints in Osaka. His first print, signed Nagasaki Kunishige, was published in Osaka at the age of 17. In 1826 he changed his name to Ryusai Shigeharu. He is said to have returned to nagasaki after the civil disturbances in the mid-1830s. He may have gone back to Osaka in the late 1840-s and, once again using the name of Kunishige, designed the bust portraits bearing this name.
