Both are by Kunisada, a.k.a. Toyokuni III.

The first one is a Genji-themed triptych entitled "Arashiyama sakura-gari no zu" 嵐山桜狩之図 ("Viewing Cherry Blossoms at Arashiyama"), published 1854. Here's an impression at MFA Boston:

The second is "Himegimi goyūran no zu" 姫君御遊覧之図 ("Excursion for a Princess"), published 1860. MFA Boston has this one as well, though they have it mis-attributed to Kunisada II:

(Kunisada II did eventually take the "Toyokuni" name, but not (as far as I know) until some time after the death of his teacher in 1864.)
