If you have uploaded a photo of the whole triptych to John Resig's Ukiyo-e Search, you should already know that it was designed by Kunichika and published in 1896. It would have been a lot easier to find it, if you'd posted a picture of the signature instead of a blurred colophon.

The triptych depicts the actor Onoe Kikigoro V performing the part of a monkey trainer. I haven't figured out what the calligraphy and the seal in the right panel means

Best regards,
