Hi Emilio --

I assume you mean the 1833 print at Ritsumeikan ARC with the norimono in the background?

This signature looks to me to be 好ニまかせ国貞画. Based on some similar examples on Horst Graebner's Kunisada signature page, I read it as "konomi ni makase Kunisada ga". I believe the sense here is that of "leaving it all to someone else", though perhaps someone who actually knows Japanese should weigh in on that!
