I believe the artist is Kobayashi Eikō (小林永興), 1868-1933.

Here's a retail listing for a book containing the image, which indicates a publication date of 1892:

The book appears to be some sort of family-oriented history reader... perhaps someone with actual Japanese language skills can chime in?

I also don't know if this is the original place where this image appeared, but I agree that it looks like your print came from such a book.
