Thanks. The role appears to be that of Banzui Chôbei (幡随長兵衛), probably in the play "Kiwametsuki Banzui Chôbê" (aka "Yudono no Chôbê"), or some other Banzui-chôbeimono play. Although Chôbê 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 Chôbê at the Ichimura-za in Tokyo.
So all that's left now is to dechipher the artist's name...
