This is an actor print by the (mostly) Osaka-based print artist Nakai Yoshitaki (1841-1899). It depicts the actor Arashi Rishō II in the role of Kuroda Saemon in an 1877 production of the play "Tamakushige hakozaki bunko". Unfortunately I'm no kabuki expert, and I don't have any further information on the play or scene.

There is an impression of this design at Hankyu Culture Foundation:
