Japanese Tryptique

A breathtaking  ukiyo-e , depicting three geishes, wearing precious and richly decorated kimono, during a pleasant spring pick-nick under the flowering trees, likely flowering cherry or almond trees. The first geisha, at the left,   is a standing woman carrying and offering a gift, the second on ,at the central sheet is a sitting woman on a rafined carpet gripping a spyglass to admire the landscape sourrounding her. The third woman is a standing geisha engaged in the traditional Japanese tea ritual.

With vivid colors and a mastery of the graphic tecnique, this is surely a modern artwork realized by the Japanese old master of ukiyo-e. 

In excellent condition, except for very minor agings signs, this original print  and a masterpiece that has not to be missing in your private collection.  The Japanese ideogramm inscriptions in cartuches at the margins reveal the name of the artist.
