Sadafusa Utagawa was a pupil of Kunisada. His prints are similar in style to those of his master. Among his favorite subjects were bijin (beautiful women), but he also created images of actors from the kabuki stage, historical and mythic figures, acrobats and game board prints. Children appear in quite a few of his prints, too.

He was active 1825-1850. He lived first in Edo, but later moved to Osaka and produced works from there.
