The artist is Kitao Shigemasa (1739-1820) here signing 'Kitao Kôsuisai ga'. The (original) scroll painting depicts a Kyoto courtesan, her attendant playing with their pet cat. The painting is dated ‘Kinotomi rinshô’ wich corresponds with the month of June of Tenmei 5 (1785).

It's impossible to judge from here if your work is original or a reproduction.
