Mochizuki Hanzan (1743–90?) was one of the most talented followers of Ogawa Haritsu (1663–1747), whose innovative lacquer techniques were characterised by the inlay of a wide variety of materials, such as glazed pottery, pewter, and other materials.

The theme of deer and autumn plants has been utilised since the Heian period in poetry and art to symbolize autumn.
