Dear Hans, Thanks a lot for your response. If you have a chance, it would be great if you could help me to understand the narrative composition of the full triptych (please see URL below):
(1) Do we know who commissionned the 當世美人揃 series?
(2) I undertsand from the Ístasiatiska museet description (your pic) that the main character is a geisha. How do you recognise she is a geisha and not a teahouse girl or higher ranking lady? Why is she wearing different clothes? Does each panel represent a different day?
(3) Should the triptych be read from left to right? Is the A-B-C order correct?
(4) What is happening behind the rice paper wall: music + kabuki play or a crime or something else?
(5) Is 辻安 (Tsuji Yasu?) the stamp showing the censor's approval?
