Katsukawa Shunchō

Katsukawa Shunchō

Katsukawa Shunchō (勝川 春潮) was a Japanese designer of ukiyo-e style Japanese woodblock prints, who was active from about 1783 to about 1795.

Although a student of Katsukawa Shunshō, Shunchō’s output, which consists mostly of prints of beautiful women, more closely resembles the work of Torii Kiyonaga.[1]

Shunchō also designed many shunga prints, which also resemble those of Torii Kiyonaga.[1]
