It is indeed a print designed by Kunisada, probably a panel from a triptych rather similar to the one above, depicting women and a child with temples in the background and carrying the same seals.

The oval censor's seal was used in 1843-1845, but as Kunisada changed his artist name to Toyokuni in 1844 and the signature here reads "Kchr Kunisada ga", we can nail the date down to 1843 or early 1844.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
