Kunichika was an alcoholic and womanizer, and also created bijinga (attractive women) paintings. He worked successfully in the Edo period, and carried those traditions into the Meiji period. To his contemporaries and now to some modern art historians, this has been seen as a significant achievement during a time of great social change in Japan’s history.
