Looks to be a fragment of a print in hosoban format (30 x 13,5 cm) depicting the actor Ichikawa Monnosuke II ca late 1770s to early 1790s. The signature is lacking but the design was probably done by a Katsukawa artist or Kiyonaga.
BTW, the new search engine for images from the collection of the MFA Boston is a mess; really an incomprehensible evolution downwards... .
