Comments - Beautiful triptych depicting Prince Genji and a group of beauties enjoying an outing to the colorful maple leaves in autumn. The young nobleman kneels at right, smiling as he places a note inside an elaborately decorated black lacquer palanquin. The young beauty at left watches with a rather dismayed expression, an attendant holding an umbrella over her as maple leaves fall to the ground. Lovely detail in the elegant palanquin and kimono fabrics, including embossing on the white kimono collars and trim and the white areas of Genji's coat, and a subtle burnished pattern on Genji's black obi.
