Utagawa Hiroshige

Born Suzuki Chinpei, Utagawa Hiroshige studied under and was adopted by Ando Hiroshige. During his tutelage, he went by the art-name of “Shigenobu”. When Ando Hiroshige died in 1858, Shigenobu married his daughter, Otatsu, and adopted the identity of Hiroshige, more commonly referred to as Hiroshige II. The marriage was dissolved seven years later, after which Hiroshige II moved away from Edo and resumed using the name Shigenobu.
