The artist is Eizan (1787-1867). The cursive writing in the title cartouche is difficult to read, but I believe the series title is "Fry bijin kodakara awase" (風流美人子宝合 - Elegant beauties together with their precious children).

The publisher's mark is that of Matsumura-ya Yahei, but I have a feeling that it may be a modern reproduction. I have seen prints with this series title and the mark of the Uchida company (see above) in the margin.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
