The signature reads "Toyokuni ga" 豊国画 ("drawn by Toyokuni"), and belongs to the print artist Utagawa Kunisada I (a.k.a Toyokuni III). Kunisada was the most prolific ukiyo-e designer by a wide margin.

The seals at top are date and censor seals. The date seal (oval) indicates that the design was approved for publication in the third month of 1857.

If you're interested in finding out more about the design, feel free to post an image of the whole thing and I'm sure someone here will be able to help!
