YOSHITORA, UTAGAWA

UTAGAWA YOSHITORA was a student of Kuniyoshi who only worked between 1840 and the early 1870s Most of his scenes show historical incidents and legends. Like all Woodblock Artists from the 19th Century he created his own versions of some of the older series but his work is uniquely individual in style and displays his artistic amazing insight and creativity.
