Thanks. The role appears to be that of Banzui Chbei (幡随長兵衛), probably in the play "Kiwametsuki Banzui Chb" (aka "Yudono no Chb"), or some other Banzui-chbeimono play. Although Chb was a signature role for Kichiemon and he played the character in many productions throughout his lifetime, based on the size and style, it likely reflects his performance in the October 1919 production of Kiwametsuki Banzui Chb at the Ichimura-za in Tokyo.

So all that's left now is to dechipher the artist's name...
