1000: Dream moon night (Haruyo)

A courtesan lazes, reading verses of love, and perhaps dreams of what the future may bring...

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.

* This is a glow-in-the-dark puzzle.

500: Simple beauty (Haruyo)

The modern hairstyle shows this to be a contemporary beauty, and spring is the setting given by the yellow yamabuki blossoms ("kerria" in horticultural circles).
