Ah, yes, thanks Hans Olof -- this one got me a better result in an image search :)

The design comes from Yoshitoshi's 1880 series "Azuma-e sugata retsujo kurabe" 吾嬬絵姿烈女競. I have seen this translated as "Eastern pictures of heroic women compared".

This design seems to be entitled 関鉄之助妾いの, but I'm not sure how to read or interpret that.
