Made by ‘Utagawa Kunisada’ after own design. Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1864) was a Japanese woodblock maker. Also known as Utagawa Toyokuni III (Sandai Utagawa Toyokuni), was the most popular, prolific and commercially successful designer of ukiyo-e woodblock prints in 19th-century Japan. In his own time, his reputation far exceeded that of his contemporaries, Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi. (Source wikipedia)
