500: Floral (Haruyo)

A somewhat pensive lady displays this sumptuously florid kimono. The background gives a semi-abstract impression of clouds and plants, simultaneously reflecting the artist's enthusiasm for textile design.

Original title: Shôka ("Syoka" on the box)

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.
