Here's a small image of the full triptych, with an attribution to Hishikawa Ryūkoku 菱川柳谷:

The image is too small for me to be totally sure, but I am inclined to say that the signature looks like it could well belong to Ryūkoku.

This image was discussed on the (now-defunct) sumo-nishikie.net site. Here is a link to the artist index for that site in the Internet Way-back Machine:

Click through to the image discussion... the larger version of the image doesn't load, but there is a description, which dates the event to spring of 1816.
