Toyohara Kunichika (30 June 1835 – 1 July 1900)
Toyohara Kunichika was born on June 30 1835 in the Kyobashi district and his family name was Ōshima Yasohachi . He was a merchant as well as an artisan of Edo (present-day Tokyo).
Chikanobu referred the young Kunichika as an apprentice to the studio of the great Utagawa Kunisada. Kunisada was the leading and most prolific print maker of the mid-19th century and consequently by 1854 the young artist had made his first confirmed signed print. He had also taken the name “Kunichika” a composite of the names of this two teachers, Kunisada and Chikanobu.
