The subject is the Kabuki actor Ichikawa Ebizo V in the role of the evil lady-in-waiting Iwafuji ('Tsubone Iwafuji'). The play was called 'Hana Momiji Tsui no Uchikake', and it was performed at the Kawarasaki-za Theatre in the 3rd month of 1850. The print would also date to that time.
The artist's signature is in the bottom-left corner, but the print is either very trimmed or this mount is covering it up.
