Ah, much better!

The signature reads "Taigaku" 戴岳. The artist was a student of Taito II, and like his teacher used the gō "Hokusen" 北泉.

Taigaku designed a few surimono around the end of Bunka, like this one:

Taigaku's work was also featured in a harimaze series combining calligraphy with images; MFA Boston has some bits of this series, and see also the attached image:

My hunch is that your print was cut from another sheet in this series -- the size is right for it to be a "half-sheet" design, like this one:
