This appears to be a kabuki actor portrait of Ichikawa Sadanji.
Interesting that the identical woodblocks were also used with a much different background:
They attribute this print to Ginko
and if so, it would be among his very early works. His later style definitely was different
Also I think your print and the one in the database represent two different kabuki dramas. So maybe the blocks were "recycled" by inserting Sadanji into a different kabuki playbill
