The influence of the school expanded with the popularity of the expressive paintings of Kabuki actors by Toyoharu's disciple, Utagawa Toyokuni
(who took his master's surname as a sign of respect).
One of the finest artists who made these things was Toyokuni
and his work appearsin The Floating World of Ukiyo-E (Abrams: pounds 34) and if you have any Christmas book tokens as yet unredeemed, I suggest you treat yourself to this splendid book which shows some marvellous pictures of the actors along with wood-block prints depicting courtesans, sports and past times and the landscapes of Edo, all part of a long--vanished Japan.
