Hi,
The pictured signature and seal appear on an 1875 triptych depicting the Sixteen Heavenly Generals of the Tokugawa. The signature reads 應需雲僲筆 (Ōju Unsen hitsu) and the two characters to the left on the seal read 雲僊 (Unsen). Can anyone read the two characters in the right of the seal? Nothing is known about this Meiji era artist, although one of his triptychs depicting a cross-section of a German battleship is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Thanks,
Irwin
