I don't know who the artist is, and I can't figure out much about the print, but apparently it has something to do with theatre. The heading reads 皿屋舗化粧姿視 (Sarayashiki kesho no sugatami), which is the title of a play. In English it is usually referred to as "The mansion of plates" or "The manor of dishes", which is a translation of the first three characters (皿屋舗, also written 皿屋敷).

Best regards,
Hans Olof
