I've just stumbled across the answer to the signature on the right -- it belongs to Yamagata Soshin 山形素真. I suppose the last kanji is "e" 絵/繪.

Here's a Soshin design with the same seal:

The signature you show is certainly more cursive than most examples of Soshin's signature I've come across, but comparing examples from a cursive dictionary, I think it could quite plausibly read "素真繪".
