The actor is Band˘ Mitsugor˘ III 坂東三津五郎 as Oda Harunaga 小田春永 from the play "Tokiha ima kiky˘no hataage" 時今也桔梗旗揚 (aka "Toki kiky˘ shusseno ukej˘" 時桔梗出世請状 - the original title of the first performance in the Ichimura theater in 1808).
The artist is Utagawa Kunisada (aka Utagawa Toyokuni III), here signing as "Gototei Kunisada ga" 五渡亭国貞画.
The year can probably be pinned down to 1829. However, I am not entirely sure on this, so others might correct me if I am wrong please.
