Yoshitoyo was an active ukiyo-e printmaker during the late Edo period and the student of both Kunisada and Kuniyoshi. While Yoshitoyo lived and worked primarily in Edo, though he briefly traveled in Osaka and became a member of the kamigate-e group, or Osaka school. He is known for his warrior prints and kite designs. He may be the same artist as Uehara Yoshitoyo.
