The artist is Utagawa Sadahide, signing 「玉蘭齋貞秀画」("Gyokuransai Sadahide ga"). It's got a standard "kiwame" seal, so that dates it to 1842 or earlier.

I'm not sure of the subject matter; Sadahide did a number of triptychs depicting processionals (of which the MFA has several) but I haven't seen another one featuring children.
