This is from an 1879-80 series by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi 月岡芳年 entitled "Dai Nippon shi ryaku zue" 大日本史略図会 ("Concise Illustrated History of Japan"). This series is catalogued on J. Noel Chiappa's Yoshitoshi site:
The site describes this design thusly:
"Taira no Shigemori attempting to dissuade his father Kiyomori, the patriarch of the Taira clan, from imprisoning the Emperor Takakura (the father of Emperor Antoku)."
Yoshitoshi signs here as "Taiso Yoshitoshi" 大蘇芳年.
