Biography

Print artist. Pupil of Utagawa Toyokuni? One of the most talented artists producing actor prints in Osaka in the 1820s, Kunihiro was also known as Tenmaya Kunihiro. About seventy per cent of his prints were issued by the publisher Tenmaya Kihei, so it is possible they were one and the same individual.
