The print presented by Erik is signed Toyokuni ga and bears a kiwame seal, so the artist is not Kunisada I.
The question is Toyokuni I or Toyokuni II?
Kunisada designed a triptych with Ichikawa Monnosuke III as “Ume no Yoshibei“ (梅のよし兵衛) in “Tsukuri mono ume no Yoshibee“, performed at the Ichimura theatre in 9/1823, so I think the artist is Toyokuni I.
And Monnosuke III held the name to 7/1824, also indicating Toyokuni I as designer of the print.
