The artist is Keisai Eisen 渓斎英泉 (1790-1848). This print bears the series title "Baika bijin kurabe" 梅花美人競, something like "Contest between plum blossoms and beauties".

The publisher seal belongs to Ōtaya Sakichi 太田屋佐吉, who published a number of series by Eisen in around the mid-1820s.

Here are a few other design from the series:
