The print is signed 'Keisai Eisen ga', published around 1830 by Ezakiya Kichibei and part of a series 'Kaiko' (?), depicting young women involved in the raise of the silkworm (kaiko) - signed poems in the cloud band on top. This print is numbered 'kaiko ichi' (small cartouche on the right in the cloud band) so assume this must be the first print of the series.
