法眼永徳画 - Hōgan Eitoku-ga - Paited by Hōgan
(Eye of Law - Buddhist title, given to Edo period painters) Eitoku
藤原 －Fujiwara －This name was used by several Kanō School painters. Kanō Eitoku 狩野永徳 -1543-1590 - there are only a few pictures left of him.
Could be more likely Kanō Eitoku 狩野永悳 1815-1891 - but the toku was written differently.
He has used similar Fujiwara seal.
Probably a deliberate counterfeiting trick.
