The text at the left reads:
大和絵師 -- "Yamato eshi", meaning something like "Japanese-style painter")
梅雪堂 -- probably read "Baisetsudō"
I take this to mean that it is the work of Baisetsudō Sadamichi, an artist active in Kyoto around the Kanpō era. This artist is known to have produced both actor portraits and landscapes.
But a couple of caveats: first, Baisetsudō is said to have generally sealed "Sadamichi" (貞道), and the seal here appears reads 貞 followed by something other than 道.
And second, I can't really make much sense of the text or seals on the right side of the print, and I would want to have a better understanding of that before making any firm pronouncements!
