the seal reads 紫園.
google shien on resig's website for more prints.

I found this on Artelino:
It is generally assumed that Shien is not an artist's name. It is the name of a seal used by the publisher Watanabe Shozaburo circa from the 1930s until the 1950s for small postcard sized prints. The assumption is that the artists behind 'Shien' were Hasui Kawase, Tsuchiya Koitsu and Shiro Kasamatsu.
