Toyokiyo (1799 - 1820 )

Toyokiyo Utagawa was an ukiyo-e artist active during the early 19th century. As the son of Toyohiro Utagawa, Toyokiyo began his training under his father before beginning his tutelage under Toyokuni Utagawa. He completed his first known work, illustrations for a novel, when he was only 10 years old. While his early works are signed "Kinzo" at age 14, he received the artist name "Toyokiyo" from the artist Toyoharu Utagawa. Though a promising talent, his career was cut short. He died at the age of 22. Toyokiyo Utagawa's known works include illustrated books, surimono, portraits of beautiful women, and a series of the Eight Views of Omi.

Japanese Woodblock Prints (1800 - 1868)

By the 19th century, Japanese woodblock prints achieved extraordinary popularity. While the shogunate issued a battery of censorship reforms throughout the 1800s, artists ignored and evaded restrictions with images of indulgent beauties and vibrant kabuki actors. As constraints tightened in the 1840s, bijin-ga (pictures of beautiful women) became earthier in prints by Eizan and Eisen, while kabuki actors persevered in the work of Kunisada (aka Toyokuni III). During this period, ukiyo-e artists also added landscapes, warriors, ghosts and scenes of everyday life to their oeuvre. Artists such as Hokusai and Hiroshige indulged a national wanderlust through Meisho-e or “famous place pictures,” while Kuniyoshi championed musha-e, a genre of warrior and legendary pictures.
