450: Double dance (Haruyo)

Two elegant dancer are posed as if in a swirl of fallen cherry blossom, and the standing figure reminds us that traditionally the feature of a kimono regarded as sexiest was the revealed back of the neck.

Original title: Futarimai (the earlier 1000-piece version we titled Two ladies)

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.
