Gyokusen, Shigeteru, was the third in line of the Mochizuki painters family. He moved away from his father's and grandfather's Nanga style due to the influences of Murakami Tôshû (act c. 1800), Gan Ku (1749-1838), Go Shun (1752-1811), representing the Maruyama, Kishi and Shijô styles respectively. He was a distinguished painter of kachôga and landscapes in Kyôto.
