Utagawa Kunisada II
1823 - 1880
Also known as: Kunimasa III, Kochoro, Ichijusai, Toyokuni IV
Kunisada II was a pupil of Kunisada. He signed his prints with Baido Kunimasa III or Kunimasa, pupil of Kochoro. In 1846 he married his master's daughter, took the go Kunisada II and used with it the go of Kochoro and Ichijusai. About 1870, after Kunisada's death, began to use the go of Toyokuni IV. His prints, largely done in bright aniline colors, represent the embellished style of the late ukiyo-e period.
