Kuniyoshi Utagawa (1798-1861)

was renowned for his skill in a variety of images, from those depicting noble warriors to caricatures overflowing with humor.
He continued to teach the techniques of ukiyo-e until the end of the Edo period.
Utagawa’s unique style earned him praise as a “painter of the fantastical,” and has continued to be popular through
the ages as modern viewers continue to enjoy his works. He showed great versatility between his depictions of heavily
muscled warriors and his images of cats, fish, or tanuki badgers who have taken on human roles.
His eye for satire and defiant spirit permeates his body of work, creating humor that remains popular today.
