About the artist

Hiroshige II, born Morita Chimpei, belonged to a family of firemen. The protégé of Hiroshige I, Hiroshige II was adopted by this great ukiyo-e master in 1845. Hiroshige II used the name "Shigenobu" until his teacher's death in 1858. He soon married his teacher's daughter, Otatsu, and took the name Hiroshige II. Around 1865, he divorced his wife, and moved to Yokohama. During this time, he designed prints and painted tea boxes and lanterns to make a living under the names Shigenobu and Ryusho. In the years following his divorce, Hiroshige II stopped producing works.
