this one is a reprint of a surimono by Kunisada I. From which time the reprint is I canít say simply based on this foto.
At Ukiyo-e search you can find two copies. On both prints you can detect the writing of a poem in the dark sky (hardly visible), which is missing on the reprint.
No idea why the MET came to the idea the surimono should have been desingend by Kunisada II.
