The artist is Utagawa Yoshifuji, signing as "Ippōsai Yoshifuji" 一鵬斎 芳藤. The title is "Kusunoki Masashige Chihaya-jō fushin no zu" 楠正成知早城普請之図, something like "View of Kusunoki Masashige building Chihaya castle".

Here's another impression, with some explanation in Japanese:

I think what it says is that the title is just a cover for what is actually a scene of Hideyoshi Toyotomi showing Oda Nobunaga repairs to Kiyosu Castle.

That page gives the design date as 1860.
