It looks to me that the pictured actor's name is given as 「助高屋高助」("Suketakaya Takasuke"). Based on style, I would guess that the design dates from around 1880, so that would be Suketakaya Takasuke IV, who held the name from 1878 to 1886.
Again going by style, my best guess for artist would be Kunichika, but other possibilities include Chikashige, Chikanobu, and Kunisada III (a.k.a. Kunimasa IV, a.k.a Hōsai).
