I'd love some assistance identifying this 'unread' artist...

It is an image of Yoshitsune's Eight Boat Leap at the Battle of Dan-no-ura.

Signed: on all three panels, but… well, I can't for the life of me read it, apart from the 'ga' (画).
Publisher seal: Mikawa-ya Tetsugorô on all panels.
Censor seal: Aratame (examined) on all panels.
Zodiacal date seal: Hare 4 on all panels. Since (if my thinking is right) a circular aratame seal was used with a separate oval zodiacal date seal 1853 to 1857, I can conclude this is the year 1855.

Trust this image uploads OK…
there doesn't seem to be an 'upload image' button here, just an 'optional image url' button. I am flying blind. If it fails to upload, can anyone direct me on how to get an image onto this message board?

warmest regards
