Q. Ukiyo-E is all a bit new to me. I can't work out if Ando and Utagawa Hiroshige are the same person?

A. They are indeed. Hiroshige studied under Utagawa Toyohiro so was a member of the Utagawa School. He preferred to use the samurai name Ando after his early work however. You can find similar cases in ukiyo-e. Utagawa Kunichika used Toyohara Kunichika, mixing the names of his 2 masters. His student, Chikanobu, called himself Yoshu Chikanobu, while still a member of the Utagawa School.
