The artist is Katsukawa Shunsen (born 1762 - died ca. 1830), here signing 'Shunk˘ ga'. Katsukawa Shunsen changed his name to 'Shunk˘' in 1820, so I, presume that your warrior print (in Japanese 'musha-e') must date from the early 1820s.
The publisher is Izumiya Ichibei (publisher's seal "Sen'ichi").
