Any help identifying these would be appreciated.   Thank you

    Both prints are chirimen-e (see https://www.viewingjapaneseprints.net/texts/topics_faq/faq_chirimen.html )

    I don't know the left print.

    The right print is by Kunisada I, here signing "Toyokuni ga".

    It is the left sheet of a Genji triptych, originally produced as a kabuki triptych.
    On your version the faces have been changed, the role names and the publisher logo have been omitted.
    The publisher was Yamamotoya Heikichi; the censorship seals are Fuku and Muramatsu, first published in 7/1851.
