The artist is Keisai Eisen. This is a print from the series 'Mitate meisho zoroi' (A collection of beautiful places, viewed as) {series title in the middle left}; the print title in the black cartouche reads 'Sumida tsutsumi no sakura' (Cherry blossoms near the embankment of Sumida River).
Published by Maruya Jinpachi in the 1820s. The name of the depicted courtesan and her tea house are written at the right: 'Ogiya uchi Hanaogi' (Hanaogi from the Ogiya or Ogi-house). This beautiful girl is the impersonation of the beautiful view (mitate).
