The sheet with the artist's signature is missing and I cannot find it in the databases. So the artist remains unknown.
The actor on the left is Ichikawa Danjūrō IX (市川團十郎) as Ōdera Shōbei (大寺正兵衛). The other two actors would have to be Iwai Shijaku II and Nakamura Shikan IV.
Danūrō IX played the role of Shōbei in "Sato no haru azami no ironui" in 1884, Shintomi theater.
The date of the print seems to be Meiji 28, this would be 1885, so another unidentified play is propably.
