The print is by Kunisada I, here signing “Ichiyōsai Toyokuni ga“. It’s one sheet of a half-length actor multisheet composition. Depicted is the actor Ichikawa Shinsha I (市川新車) as Seki no Koman (関の小まん) in the play “Kutsuwa no oto tazuna no Somewake“, performed at the Ichimura theatre, Edo, in 4/1861. Date of the print ist most probably 5/1861, publisher is Izutsuya Shōkichi and the carver seal is “hori kō Fuka Chō“ for Fukagawa Chōjirō,
