500: Violet (Haruyo)

A delicate young model holds a gauzy purple veil, and just reveals on her sleeve an echo of Hokusai's "Wave."

Original title: Shiyu

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.
