It comes from an 1855 polyptych published by Izumiya Ichibei 和泉屋市兵衛 -- I think it's a hexaptych.

MFA Boston has the three left sheets, of which the design in question is not included:

They give the title as "Sagami-yō Genji-sei" 相模様源氏製 ("Made by Genji in Sagami Style").

Yamada-Shoten has the right five sheets, including your design:

But they give another title, "Sono Yukari Sode ga Ura" 其紫袖ヶ浦染.

Also, ukiyo-e.org shows that Hara Shobo once listed the full hexaptych, and it does appear that the leftmost and rightmost sheets have the different titles given by the other sources:
