Publisher : Yama-Den (山伝)
active c.1793-96
Ref. Marks 01-124/U374

The British Museum has a print by the Toyokuni l which is probably from the same series
https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/A_1945-1101-0-31

Extract of BM description :
Sixteen designs are known by Toyokuni showing half-length portraits of pairs of actors with a grey background, published by Yama-Den between the 7th and 11th months, 1796

The following is my personal opinion and without any confirmation. Your print shows Ichikawa Danjűr˘ VI (Ichikawa Ebizō IV) and maybe ?Ichikawa Yaoz÷ III?

Prints used for facial recognition
