About the artist

Kuniyasu was born in Edo and studied under Toyokuni. His artist name was Kuniyasu, though for a brief period around 1811 he used the name Yasunobu Nishikawa before resuming his old name. Kuniyasu's work concentrates on Kabuki actors (yakusha-e), privately commissioned works (surimono) and beautiful women (bijin-ga). Kuniyasu's prints can now be found in collections and exhibitions around the world, such as those of the Tokyo National Museum and the British Museum.
