Thank you for your kind answer.
A Japanese-speaking acquaintance of mine told me this evening that the writing 白琇 reads Hakushu; he is not able to interpret the seal. (Online jp-en dictionaries translate the romaji Hakushu as "applause, clapping" somewhere and also as applause.)
A Google search of Hakushu does not bring up any woodblock print artist (although there is a western-style watercolor on paper signed Hakushu auctioned in 2005)...
I have attached a larger image of the seal that I hope it might help the identification. Thanks again.
