Hiroshige III Utagawa

Born Goto Torakichi, Hiroshige III was an ukiyo-e artist, originally given the artistic name Shigemasa. His woodblock prints were in the same artistic style as his master, Hiroshige I, but was less commercially successful. In 1867, after Hiroshige II, a fellow pupil of the original Hiroshige, divorced the master's daughter Otatsu, Goto married her and initially took on the name Hiroshige II as well, but by 1869 he began calling himself Hiroshige III.
