comic art by Kuniyoshi Utagawa

In 1815, Kuniyoshi Utagawa illustrated his first book. In about 1829, his Ukiyo-e series 'Suikoden Nishikie' made him famous as a master of warrior pictures. Things went smoothly for Utagawa after that time and other series followed. 'Toto Meisho' is probably the best known. Later series include 'Miyamoto Musashino Kujirataiji', 'Soma no Furudairi' and 'Myoukai Kou Goju Sanbiki'. Utagawa's cartoon-like drawings also enjoyed great popularity in his time.
