The artist is Keisai Eisen 渓斎英泉. The text in the title cartouche reads "Tōsei bijin awase" 当世美人合 [當世美人合] (something like "Collection of contemporary beauties"). The smaller text is "Shōchikubai ukiyo san bijin" 松竹梅浮世三美人.

The publisher seal belongs to Izumiya Ichibei 和泉屋市兵衛.

Here's another impression:

I haven't found much of any other information on this, but the reference to "three beauties" makes me think it would have been part of a triptych or three-design series.
