The print designed by Kunisada and titled 'Fry rokkasen no uchi' (Six refined flowers from within), signed 'Toyokuni ga' and published by Yamamotoya Heikichi.

Kunisada, in collaboration with Yamamotoya Heikichi, designed a triptych during the late 1830s , with the same title and cartouche but signed 'Kchr Kunisada ga' (cfr. the image).

In 1844, Kunisada changed his name to Toyokuni so my guess is that Michelle's print is part a from a triptych that dates from that slightly later period (1844-1845) - obviously, as a kind of continuation of the earlier theme.
