2016: Beauties of the four seasons (Haruyo)

Haruyo's own version of the four-panel seasons theme, well known from the paintings by Alfons Mucha. Packed with relevant details, there will be no tedious bits to this puzzle.

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.
