Paul,

Your print is an actor portrait designed by Kuniyoshi. The actor is Iwai Shijaku I, later known as Iwai Hanshirô VII.

As Shijaku adopted that name in 1822 (see http://www.kabuki21.com/hanshiro7.php) and the round kiwame seal was last used in 1842, we can safely say that the print was published some time between these years.

Best regards,
Hans Olof
