I can only offer a few observations on this one, but here goes...

The artist here is Toyohara Kunichika, signing "Kunichika ga". I have not thus far been able to identify either the publisher seal nor the censor seal, a fact which has me a bit puzzled. But going by style, I'd guess the design dates to the mid-1860s.

The depicted actor belongs to the Nakamura Fukusuke line. If my date estimate is correct, then it would be Nakamura Fukusuke II. I don't know the role or play.
