This is a design by Utamaro. I haven't found another copy of this exact design, but it appears to belong to a series of courtesans compared to the Thirty-six Poetic Immortals; MFA in Boston has a different design from this series:

It appears that, like the one at the MFA, your print depicts a courtesan of the house of Tsuruya. I can't help with the rest of the text.
