It's a print by Keisai Eisen, depicting a courtesan of the house of Tamaya in the Yoshiwara pleasure quarter. It looks like her name may be given as "Shiratama" (しら玉); see this example by Eizan that gives a similar-looking rendering of that name:

I'm not sure of the series, but most Eisen prints of this type date to c. 1825-1835.
