Hiroshige II, Ando, 1829-1869

Given name Suzuki (originally Morita) Chimpei. Go: Hiroshige II, Ichiryusai, Ichiyusai, Kisai, Ryusai, Ryusho (Rissho), Shigenobu. Ukiyo-e printmaker. Pupil and adopted son of Ando Hiroshige; probably assisted in some of the late work of his master. At first used go of Shigenobu; when his master died in 1858, married his daughter and took his name. About 1865 his marriage was dissolved; retired to Yokohama, once again using the go Shigenobu and also signing Ryusho, painting pictures on tea boxes and lanterns intended for export. His work varies; his prints, at best, a good imitation of his master’s but much is hasty and superficial; his paintings almost as fine as Hiroshige’s. Taken in whole, or in part from: Roberts, Laurance P. A Dictionary of Japanese Artists: Painting, Sculpture, Ceramics, Prints, Lacquer. Weatherhill, Inc: New York. 1986.
