If you haven't figured it out already with the help of Noel's actor identification system, your print is a portrait of the actor Iwai Hanshirô V.
It was published in 1806 as part of a series depicting Hanshirô V performing the "Dance of the seven changes" (七へん化 - Shichi henge). Above is another print from the same series, from the collection of Waseda University.
