Yes, the artist is Kunichika, depicting Ichikawa Danjūrō IX.
November 1897: Danjūrō played at the Kabukiza the role of Fujiwara no Shihei in "Shihei no Nana Warai", which was the second act of Namiki Gohachi's drama "Tenmangū Natane no Gokū" revised by Fukuchi Ōchi.
On the print, the role is given as 「時平公七ワらひ」, "Shihei kō nanawarahi".
Ritsumeikan ARC has this design catalogued; lots of info there:
