1000: Fuyune (Haruyo)

Winter! Fuyune holds her new year's "arrow of good fortune", surrounded by peonies, pine and red-berried nanten bushes weighed down by snow dumplings. Haruyo has thoughtfully added a distant golden pavilion (Kinkakuji) to break up what would otherwise be a large blank area in the upper right corner.

Detail

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.
