1000: The garden of the four seasons (Haruyo)

Here we see the four ladies, representing the seasons, gathered together in a lawn party somehow reminiscent of a scene from the French impressionists. One dances with a fan, another accompanying her on the koto; a third reads, while the fourth is content to watch.

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.
