The artist is indeed Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1865).
The print is from a rare series in the large 'nagaban' format, titled 誂染美女の新形 (Atsuraezome bijo no shingata') and published ca. 1835-37 by Moriya Jihei (Kinshindō). Only one other design seems to be recorded.
BTW: I found no translation of the series title. My attempt: 'New types of beauties - dyed to order'.
