    The artist is Kunisada I, signing "Kunisada ga". It's a kabuki print depicting the actor Nakamura Noshio III (中村のしほ), role name unread. Publisher Kawachiya Genshichi, date c. 1815.

    Many thanks for this. Neither Japanese Woodblock Print Search nor Google Images turned up a copy, and my Japanese is sadly inadequate.

    The writing next to the actor's name is not a role name, but means "Osaka kudari" [= coming from Osaka] (大坂下り).
    Thanks to Lucienne for the addition!
