    Utagawa Toyokuni I was a Japanese artist and printmaker during the 19th century. He was a great master of ukiyo-e, known in particular for his kabuki actor prints. The term ukiyo-e translates to "pictures of the floating world" and refers to a genre of Japanese art with a wide span of imagery such as kabuki actors, folk tales, landscapes, and even erotica. This movement was critical in forming the Western perception of Japanese art.
