The artist is Keisai Eisen, signing "Eisen ga" (英泉画).

There is a copy of this print in the collection of the National Diet Library:

The text reads "五節美人合之内 名代床", which I am not entirely sure how to translate, but is something about the beauties (bijin) of the FIve Festivals (gosechi). Hopefully someone with meaningful Japanese language skills will chime in!
