Kunichika Toyohara born in Oshima Yasohachi (Edo period, 1835 - 1900). Kunichika Toyohara was one of the last Japanese ukiyo-e  painter. His first signed print is from 1852, but it was only in 1854 that he took the go (stage name) "Kunichika". He is best known for his prints of Kabuki actors, using the woodblock technique. He also painted beautiful women and, for some special occasions, historical scenes. Many stories of women are told about him (he seems to have had 40 wives), debts, parties and his need to move frequently: the legend around him talks about 117 removals. It is not clear how many of these stories are true, he was certainly a brilliant painter with a unmistakable talent and a dissipated life.
