It's Yoshifuji, signing "Yoshifuji ga" よし藤画.

Unfortunately the colophon is too blurry for me to make out much... looks like the date is Meiji something-7, maybe sixth month: 明治x七年六月.

The name of the publisher is very hard to make out, but possibly it is Matsuno Yonejirō 松野米治郎?

See this page for an omocha-e print by Yoshifuji and published by Matsuno Yonejirō in 1895 (entry #3):

What's interesting about that is that the literature I've seen suggests Yoshifuji ceased working in the late 1880s, so I'm not sure what to make of this!
