This appears to be a reprint of a design by Kikukawa Eizan 菊川英山. The design comes from a series entitled "Kyōzome Kōrin moyō" 京染こうりん模様, and was originally published c. 1814 by Iwatoya Kisaburō 岩戸屋喜三郎. Your print spells this series title a little differently, 京染光琳模様, suggesting a connection to the artist Ogata Kōrin 尾形光琳. Kōrin was, among his many artistic talents, a textile designer, so I think the series concept is pairing textile designs by Kōrin with beautiful women.

The only image from the series I have found is this one:
