Chimpei Morita took the name Hiroshige II Utagawa because he was a student of Hiroshige Utagawa. Chimpei made more than thirty woodblock prints of flowers and (or) birds drawn in the style of his teacher Hiroshige. Seventeen examples are shown here (pictures 1-17). Click on a picture to enlarge it. In 1866 Chimpei published a series of prints entitled Sanjūrokassen (i.e., Thirty-six Selected Flowers). Each print had a flowering plant displayed prominently in the foreground and the Japanese landscape shown in the background. Three examples are included in this gallery (pictures 18-20).
