Japanese Edo / Meiji Utagawa Printmaker
Utagawa (orig. Takenouchi) Hidehisa. Go: Baido Hosai, Hochoro, Kunimasa IV, Kunisada III, Toyokuni V.
Utagawa Kunisada (b. Tsunoda Kunisada, 1786-1864) became a pupil of Toyokuni at age fifteen. With Kuniyoshi and Hiroshige, Kunisada was the leading Ukiyo-e artist of the late Edo period. He is said to have produced a larger number of works than any other Ukiyo-e artist. In 1844 he assumed the name Toyokuni III and afterwards led an atelier of some twenty-eight pupils in producing ever-larger series of actor portraits and prints of beauties, of increasingly technical complexity.
