About the artist

Born in Yanagawa in 1787, Shigenobu worked as a puppet maker before his successful career as a ukiyo-e printmaker and book illustrator. A student of the great Hokusai, Shigenobu married his teacher’s daughter. Upon their marriage, Hokusai handed down his go (artist name) “Raito” to his new son-in-law. Shigenobu is known for his delicate surimono (lavishly printed, privately commissioned works), graceful beauties, and inviting landscapes.
