The artist is Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, here signing "Yoshitoshi ga" 芳年画.

This is a design from the 1888 series "Fūzoku sanjūnisō" 風俗三十二相. This design is "Shidaranasasō Kansei nenkan Kyōto geiko no fūzoku" しだらなさそう 寛政年間 京都芸子風俗.

Have a look at design #2 on this page:

I see there have been at least a couple of different editions, with the publication information presented slightly differently... here's an example of one that looks more like yours:

As far as I can tell, both versions give the publisher as Tsujiokaya Kamekichi 辻岡屋亀吉 (here as "Tsunajima Kamekichi" 綱島亀吉). I don't have any further information.
