This is indeed a memorial portrait ("shini-e") of Onoe Kikugoro V (1844-1903) who died on the 18th February 1903 - the first part of the the inscription gives the date of his decease on Meiji 36, 2nd month, 18th day. The remaider of the inscription gives as usual on "shini-e" the actor's posthumous buddhist name, his actor's stage name and finally his secular name.
