Kunikazu Utagawa (c.1830-1919) was a Japanese artist and woodblock engraver. He had a famous teacher, the ukiyo-e artist Kunisada Utagawa, who at his time was considered the best ukiyo-e artist. Kunisada was quite successful and maintained a huge studio with many young students who may have produced a large number of the designs that were published under Kunisada's name. Most of Kunikazu's prints were actor and kabuki theatre subjects, but he made also a few landscape series.
