This is Kunisada II, signing as "Ichijusai Kunimasa" (一寿斎国政). The title cartouche indicates that the design depicts Act 12 of the play Kanadehon Chūshingura (仮名手本忠臣蔵). The "paired nanushi" censor seals date the design to 1847-52. The publisher, whose name is next to the artist signature, is Daikokuya Heikichi (大黒屋平吉).
