Yes, I think you are right on track. I read the text as:

The publisher seal belongs to Ibaya Kyūbei 伊場屋久兵衛. According to Marks, this seal was used in 1845 and 1851. The censor seal appears to be a "single nanushi" seal, which, given those date options, indicates 1845.
I suspect this was likely part of a multi-panel design, probably a triptych, but I haven't found another impression to confirm.
