This is the centre sheet of an oban triptych. The actor Sawamura Gennosuke I is playing the role of Umezawa Kagorobei in the play ‘Sakaicho Maizuru Soga’ by Nagawa Tokusuke I, performed at the Nakamura-za in the 1st month of 1811.
(The right sheet is of the kabuki actor Segawa Roko IV as Tsukisayo, and the left sheet depicts Onoe Matsusuke II as Onio Bozu.) For the full triptych, see the British Museum collection search: http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/collection_online/collection_object_details.aspx?objectId=3073818&partId=1&searchText=Katsukawa+Shunsen&images=true&page=1
