Courtesan and Travelers - Handsome kabuki triptych showing a beauty and two travelers gathered beneath a maple tree at night. The beauty rests her hands on a yoke over her shoulder as she chats with the fellow at right. He stares back at her with an angry frown, a folding fan dangling from a bamboo stalk over his shoulder. The fellow at left has pushed down his kimono, baring his upper body. Colorful maple leaves frame the night sky above. Nicely detailed with burnishing on the beauty's black hat and obi.
