The print is by Kunisada I, signing "Kōchōrō Kunisada ga". It belongs to the series "A collection of beautiful women" (Bijin awase, 美人合); the print itself has no title. Publisher is Kagaya Kichiemon (from 1851 on Kagaya Kichibei); date c. 1835-40.
A later version is known without series title and no publisher's mark / logo. In this version the print is entitled "9th month" (kugatsu, 九月) and belongs to an untitled 12 months series.
