It is a reproduction of a print by Utamaro - in this scene the two women are helping the man by applying make-up to his face, while he looks at the results in the mirror

The seller of another copy of this gives a date of printing of 1909

I am not sure whether that is correct but it is safe to say this is an early-20th century print, as you mentioned
