Kunisada’s pupil Sadakage made his living primarily as an book illustrator for noted writers such as Jippensha Ikku and Koigawa Harumachi. He also produced a number of deluxe surimono. For his surimono he worked almost exclusively with ‘bijin’ imagery, he seems to have worked almost exclusively for the ‘Oe-ren’, the poetry circle headed by Shakuyakutei. His family name was Kojima and he lived in Mejirodai.
