Tadamasa Ueno was born in 1904 as Ueno Katsumi. He studied the art of engraving with Torii Kyotada (1875-1941) - also Torii VII. The Torii family had been a painter and engraver of ukiyo-e for several generations and dates back to the 17th century. Ueno received his artist name Tadamasa - with the syllable tada taken from the name of his master Kyotada.
From Tadamasa Ueno to Tadamasa Torii
In 1949, the Torii family allowed Tadamasa to use the famous Torii name. And he became Tadamasa Torii.
