This one is tough because there's no signature, no publisher seal, and no censor or date seal. It's quite odd to see a design like this without any of those things; I don't know what to make of that. Possibly it means the original design had more sheets and the "missing" info was on one of those other sheets, but that's just a guess.

Anyway, I did find an impression of this in a Mizui Hanga catalog; it is listed as "artist unknown", published 1850s. The format is certainly consistent with the work of Kuniyoshi or his students from that period, but I couldn't hazard a more specific attribution.

Have a look at catalog item 251 (楠正行四条縄手合):

Good luck,
