I’m curious about this print I got. I haven’t been able to find another one like it. On the back is written Kuniyoshi (1791-1861). Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    The artist is Utagawa Kuniyoshi here signing Chô-ô-rô Kuniyoshi ga (朝櫻楼 國芳 画)

    The title of the series is
    Sugata hana bijin kagami (姿花 美人鏡)

    Your print doesn't have a publisher seal and the text in the left cartouche reads
    若那屋内 Wakanaya  若人 Wakato
    whereas on the Kuniyoshi site it reads Okamotoya 岡本屋内  Katsuhito 勝人
