Utagawa Yoshitora
Edo Utagawa Printmaker
Japanese F.N.: Tatsugoro, later Tatsunosuke, Tatsusaburo. Go: Ichimosai, Kinchoro, Mosai (after 1874).
Utagawa Yoshitora was an Ukiyo-e printmaker who was born and worked in Edo. He was one of the best pupils of Utagawa Kuniyoshi. He made prints of Tokyo scenes, of foreigners in Yokohama, and of foreign scenes, all in the late ukiyo-e manner. It is obvious, however, that he never saw any of the foreign scenes he depicted and, instead, copied them from Western engravings. The prints have considerable naive charm. (Roberts, 204)
