Spring Tea Ceremony, 1891 - Lovely Chikanobu triptych of beauties at a teahouse, one relaxing on the verandah as she chats with a companion standing in the garden. She wears a striking purple coat with a burnished black collar over a kimono delicately shaded from blue to white to soft yellow. Inside, two women and a young girl attend a tea ceremony, the hostess using a whisk to mix the tea as the guests watch quietly. A path of stepping stones leads along a winding stream crossed by a narrow plank bridge and an arched bridge further in the distance. A large stone lantern stands near a pine tree, and blossoming plum trees frame the scene. A beautiful design with charming detail.
