The full colored print depicts Ichikawa Ebizō V in 1832; this information is the same on Kuniyoshi Project and BM site.
The aizuri-e print depicts Nakamura Shikan II in 1833 as an ireki print (I know a Kunisada fan print with Shikan II in this role with the same kimono dated to 1833).
Nakamura Shikan IV staged the role of Higuchi no Jirō in 1862, but is not the actor on this aizuri-e. Here William made a mistake.
