Hiroshige III
1842-1894
Ukiyo-e painter active over the period from Edo period to Meiji period. A pupil of Utagawa Hiroshige I. Also referred to as Isshosai or Ichiritsusai. His father was a ship builder. He was adopted to a restaurant owner. In the beginning, he learned from Utagawa Hiroshige I and created his own artwork around 1861-1864 under the name of Shigemasa, but in 1867, he got married to Otatsu, Hiroshige Ifs daughter, to call himself Utagawa Hiroshige II. But in fact, he was Utagawa Hiroshige III. This is because Utagawa Hiroshige II was intentionally erased just as in the case of Utagawa Toyokuni -III-(Kunisada)">Kunisada .
