This is by Utagawa Yoshimaru II 歌川芳丸 (1844-1907), signing "大円斎芳丸", perhaps read "Daiensai Yoshimaru". According to Japanese wikipedia, this artist was a student first of Kuniyoshi and then later Torii Kiyomitsu III.

I'm not totally sure about the subject matter of this design, but, based on the hairstyle of the male figure, would guess it to be on a Genji-related theme.
