1000: Two ladies (Haruyo)

The original title, Futarimai, literally means "a dance of two people" and the two figures are posed as if in a swirl of fallen cherry blossom.

Remember (see detail below) that traditionally the feature of a kimono regarded as sexiest was the revealed back of the neck.


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.
