I think the signature is "Sogaku" 素岳. Though I've found no biographical information, I know of a handful of Meiji-era works bearing such a signature... some examples:

I do see a Zeshin attribution made by Japanese Galley Kensington, but I do not know upon what basis their attribution rests. I also notice that the signature on their impression is a little different than the one on yours... I'm not sure what to make of that fact, but either way it certainly doesn't read "Zeshin" 是真.
