period: 1603-1867 Ukiyo-e (Edo Period)

Kuniyoshi was born in Edo in 1797, his father was a silk dyer and as a child Kuniyoshi would help him. Toyokuni, a friend of his father, accepted the young boy into his school in 1811 and, after completing his apprenticeship, his master gave him the artist’s name Kuniyoshi. Commissioned by a publisher in 1827 Kuniyoshi realized a large series of prints depicting the rebel warriors protagonists in the Chinese novel Suikoden.
