Publisher is Mikawa (三川), active in Edo c.1779-1828 but not further identified (Marks: publisher U223, seal 25-216).
Published unserialized warrior prints designed by Katsukawa Shunzan but this print seems to be unsigned.
The warrior depicted is Shinozuka Iga no Kami (篠塚伊賀守 - full name: Shinozuka Iga no Kami Sadatsuna), lifting a giant mast. From a tale celebrating Shinozuka's power and a popular theme in ukiyo-e late 18th, early 19th century.
