It's a design from a series by Utagawa Kuniyoshi entitled "Taiheiki eiyū den" 太平記英勇傳. Pictured is Ridayū Hidemoto 明石理太夫秀基.

The series was originally published by Yamamotoya Heikichi 山本屋平吉 c. 1848-1849. However, I see that your impression appears to be lacking the text and title cartouches of the original, so I take it to be a reprint of some sort. I'm aware of a 1917 reprint of this series by Yoshikawa Kobunkan, although that version also removed the signature and seals, so this is something else...
