The print is by Kunisada I, here signing „ōju nanajūroku-o Toyokuni hitsu“. Depicted is Kawarazaki Gonjūrō I as Hyakusho Jihizo jitsuha (= actually) Naoe Yamashiro. Play is unidentified. Publisher is Fujiokaya Keijirō and date 1861 (month unreadable). The print belongs to a series of half length actor print entitled えさうし連天幕写 - Esashi ren tenmaku sha, but I couldn’t find a reasonable tranlation for the title.
