Toyokuni was one of the first Japanese
artists to include complex landscapes
in his woodblock print designs, often as
backgrounds to scenes of fashionable people.
As a young man, the artist Hiroshige
asked to be Toyokuni’s pupil but was
turned down, apparently as Toyokuni
already had too many students.
