Utagawa Hiroshige III (三代目 歌川 広重, Sandaime Hiroshige Utagawa, 1842 or 1843 – March 28, 1894) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist who was a student of Utagawa Hiroshige. He was also referred to as Andō Tokubei (安藤徳兵). Born Gotō Torakichi (後藤寅吉), he was given the artistic name Shigemasa. In 1867, after Hiroshige II, a fellow pupil of the original Hiroshige, divorced the master's daughter Otatsu, Gotō married her and initially took on the name Hiroshige II as well, but by 1869 he began calling himself Hiroshige III. Hiroshige III worked in the same artistic style as his master, but did not achieve anywhere near the same level of success.
