It's a depiction of Minamoto no Yoshiie at the Nakaso Barrier, by Migita Toshihide 右田年英.

There seem to have been at least two editions of this, the earlier published by Sasaki Toyokichi 佐々木豊吉 in 1890, and the other by Daikokuya Heikichi 大黒屋平吉 (aka Matsuki Heikichi 松木平吉) in 1893.

Impressions of the earlier edition, with gourd seal at lower right:

(Note this 2nd link dates the print to 1893, but the colophon is pretty clearly for Meiji 23.)
