Kitagawa Utamaro II
Edo Utagawa Printmaker
Orig. Ogawa, the Koikawa. F.N.: Ichitaro. Go: Baigado Utamaro, Harumachi Nisei, Riteitei Yukimachi, Utamaro II.
Koikawa Shuncho was a pupil of Utamaro, and after his master's death, Shuncho adopted his name (Utamaro II) and called himself Utamaro Nidai until 1820, when he changed it to Tetsugoro. He is also believe to have worked with Utamaro on some of the latter's prints. Utamaro II is considered by some a minor figure, feebly imitating the great master.
