Georges,

The leftmost panel seems to be missing from the LoC copy of the pentaptych, and while the signatures in the other sheets are rather difficult to read, the signature on the left sheet is very clear. Without any doubts it reads "Ichimôsai Yoshitora ga" (一猛斎芳虎画).

The censor's seal is Mura, which indicates a publishing date between 1843 and 1845.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
