This is the full name of painter.During the more than 300 years of prominence almost 200 painters belonged to the Kano school of Painters using the
same Kano surname - and not speaking of indirect disciples. From several biographies I found out that
our painter Gyokuzan Tsugunobu came from Saga,
his original name was Sawara Gyokuzan (佐原玉山.
In 1787 became the disciple of Kano Gyokugen (狩野玉元）. No more detail available.
(FYI.Masanobu is written 正信)
